Fort Riley

Just follow the arrows

Been here a week now.  The first three days were crazy-hectic–full of completing paperwork, drawing equipment, going to the range.  The last three have been slow, slow, slow.  One problem is that our flight to Afghanistan for our pre-deployment reconnaissance has been delayed.

Still, it is a kick to be back in the regular Army, hanging out with soldiers and officers, shooting and cleaning weapons, eating in the dining facility, and so on.  Also, Fort Riley is an impressive place physically (save for the 100 degree heat the first three days here).  The facilities we live and work out of are new and intelligently laid out, the grounds are beautiful and spacious.
