1:54 PM - Still there?

anyone still read this thing? i sure haven't, at least not since i left for california in august for ntc.

ntc went well. mostly. it was sweltering hot and we were drinking hot water most days, which really pretty much took the life right out of you. it was no fun at all, but at least it's over now.

we're getting ready to deploy in november. i'm not sure of the dates and i couldn't tell you even if i wanted to, but i might write about it. i'm still tossing that idea back and forth, because part of me wants to write about it and enjoys getting this shit off my chest, while the other (logical) part of me knows that i'll have to register the site with my chain of command and lost the anonymity that i currently enjoy. so what should i do? take the site public and reveal who i am, or shut it down? or keep fighting the man and posting with a fake name until they finally catch on?

There are plenty of people out there who are "posting" about what's going in "over there". Only you can decide whether or not to continue. Good luck soldier! I will be praying for you!

Hey Soldier,
Nice to see your words.

As to blogging, I hope you do. Get the site registered...and as Greyhawk at MudvilleGazette wrote" Write as if the enemy, the Chief of Staff and your mother will read your posts." (paraphrasing)

NO matter what, just keep writing if only for yourself.

Thank you for the job you do.

I think you should write and post anonymously. See how long it takes for them to catch on. Maybe you could email to a friend and they could post for you.
