    My step-brother leaves Tuesday for the Army. I tried to give him all of the advice I could remember from basic. I found out I don't remember as much as I should.

    Hell I just got out of the AZNG April 23rd. That was only last month -where did my memory go?

    He's going to be a combat engineer. So if anybody is stationed at Lost in the Woods over there in Missouri, please say hi.

    Good for him! Ya know, the thing that amazed me the most when I first got to basic (last summer) was how many other people were joining despite the world situation at the time (and now). When I was fixin to go thats all I ever heard from folks "dont you know there's a war going on, why are you joining now?" All I could think of to answer was "Why arent you?"
    Anyways, it's good to see that there are others out there in this country who WANT to help and do something worth while. Make sure you shake his hand for me before he ships out.
