    Just got back rom Fort Rucker after attending Warrant Officer School for the past 5 weeks. That was the most challenging thing I have done so far. But I made it, and I am officially a U.S. Army Warrant Officer.

    The highlight was the trip we took to Andersonville, Ga. to visit the old Confederate prison camp and the national POW Museum. The guest speaker was a fellow by the name of William Robinson. He is the longest enlisted POW in the Armed Forces. He was a prisoner in Vietnam for 8 years. The stories he told us were just amazing. It was definitely something I will never forget.

    Here is a picture of me, the one in the middle being sworn in.

    Best rank to have in the Army! No enlisted duties, and no command responsibilities.

    Amen to that brother. Now I just have to let the 1SG know that he is not dealing with PFC or SSG Turner anymore. He was my Platoon SGT back when I was a PVT. He thinks I still have to answer to him.

    Ft Hood. My friend it is never hot or dusty and no chiggers at all. Heck your just 1 hour to Austin and another 2.5 to 3 hrs to Houston. There is a lot of places around that area to live but there is a lot of places or areas that screw soldiers. I'm sure they will tell you when you get there.
    Got out in 95 but live in Austin and buy you a beer if you come to town.
    What is your job now.
    1St Cav has one heck of a history.
