Can you believe it?!? I am at home! They gave me a pass for the weekend. It is so nice to be home for a few days. Friday was a very productive day - we watched five videotaped briefings in the morning, had lunch and then went to the processing building to see what we could accomplish. They actually pushed us through most of the medical in one day. We had to get blood drawn, shots updated (I only needed a Typhoid shot - others needed five!) Monday we have to do a few more medical items and then we can move onto Finance and Personnel processing. We hope to be on a plane by the end of the week!

I plan to post all the photos from our adventure on a very snazzy photo gallery on my website, but I tried to upgrade it this evening and made it a mess. So, in the mean time, I have posted what we have at the following address:

I have to report back to Ft Hood on Sunday by 1800. The conditions at Hood are deplorable. The rooms are not great and are quite uncomfortable. More on that later... This is all for now. I will try to post more later this week if I can.
