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?
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.
