    Transition Week! We are done! Can't wait to get classes started and have a small amount of normality back.

    Basic was challenging, but for the better. Jack's was an awesome experience, doing the A-Course, LRC, and the O-course. Definitly will never forget it.

    Next step.....make it to Thanksgiving!

    Congrats 2014 Basics! Getting communication means back is pretty sweet, huh? Aren't you glad your weren't at the USAFA in the "good ole days" before internet?!?!?! I sure am glad I wasn't a parent of a cadet back before internet, cell phones, and text messaging!

    Jack's was definitely a good time (although I actually enjoyed 1st BCT as well). The A-course definitely my favorite part of basic. We did it the day after arriving at Jack's. Talk about starting off with a bang.

    I don't know about you guys, but I've never been so content to just sit down.

    I have to say I have been chatting with my kid and several other cadets on facebook and you can just sense the joy of communication and accomplishment - again congrats to all and keep up the hard work - many people even ones you don't know are proud of you

    We did the A-Course early as well. Glad we got it out of the way for the more fun stuff.

    And yes I agree....sitting down just feels awesome.

    "LOOSEHOGS!"

    Hmm...I wonder...is the CS-34 Thunderbolt painting still in the corner of the SE Stairwell? If it is it will/should have the name "Murakami '83" in the corner.

    That wasn't the original patch...the "loose hog" was a bit different...

    When I get a chance when we EVER do use the SE stairwell (since I have to use the SW one I believe) I'll take a look!

    It was pretty bad today in practice. Tomorrow will be a good day. Great to be back. Looking back on it all, it really is something to be proud of.

    Later,
