but anyway: the process of getting new leaders is always painful, because you've got a myriad of inspections, more inspections, and a general feeling-out period where no one quite knows what to expect and no one knows how the new guy will react. granted, he seems nice and all (which may not be a good thing with this group), but he laid out his one single rule for us today and told his his biggest pet peeve. turns out he's one of those types who despise cursing, and he would appreciate* it if we wouldn't use foul language around him. so yeah, that's not going to go over too well with a bunch of guys who kill for a living and hate their jobs.
regardless, things are still progressing nicely for the iraq deployment. we're going to get block leave after all, and i plan on using my time wisely by doing a little traveling to california.
** by that i mean, of course, that if we do it, we'll get counseling statements written up.

Dam*, I'm sure glad he is in the Army and not the Marine Corps. The Jarheads I knew (and know) can't commicate with out a multitude of curse words.
Maybe you could just pass him notes or emails.
Or just grunt
Or only give your N,R,SN
Or run when you see him
BTW, I was Army (grunt).
Hope he works out, give him a good chance to.
