    Training on some sort of vehicles going on today at ft. Hood.

    I honestly would like to see the ar design be retired. IMO there are much better combat rifles available these days. I know the problem is cost of replacing them all.

    I know I'm about 2 months late on the timeline with the graduation video. Finally got around to editing. This is a clip from the graduation ceremony at Ft. Leonard Wood Missouri after Basic training and AIT.

    Just got word that my son will be sent to ft. Irwin California in October for more infantry and mine removal training. Precursor to the overseas deployment probably early next year.
