Letters to the battlefield
More like a diary, this blog will tell about my journey in the military.
From the very beginning, the military service just felt like something I wanted, needed to do. Not purely because of patriarchy, though, that much I can admit. I wait for the upcoming challenges and overcoming them, learning and generally growing up.
Surely the military training won't be a walk in the park, but I'm more than ready to take it on. The overall experience will be worth it - I'm sure of it.
Surprisingly, it won't be possible for me to update that frequently. However, I'm hoping I will be able to write down all the most memorable happenings and possibly slide in some small happenings too.
My main blog
Been a month since the last update. I actually have no excuses other than the fact I’ve forgotten my actual diary in barracks a couple times, so I haven’t had anything to brighten up my memory. This time I managed to take it with me, fortunately.
We’ve had two camps and a few longer vacations, so there isn’t actually so much stuff to go through.
Been three weeks again. I’m slipping from my schedule, but on my defence, we haven’t been doing much so I didn’t feel an urgent need to update.
We had the first - and really short - combat exercise and after that we’ve just practiced establishing a command center.
Been a while- such a long while that our rookies are now privates and their basic training course ended yesterday. To throw in some excuses for not updating in four weeks, I was kept in the brigade for three weeks and I was traveling during the weekend vacation following that. In other words, there’s a lot of things to go through!
(Wouldn’t you look at me- I finally made an icon for this blog. Not the finest piece, but it’ll do. An actual update has to wait, however, for I gotta run soon to watch over my rookies. It’ll be three weeks worth of things next week, then!)
Well, it’s been a while, no? My apologies. Even though I’ve been living in the familiar barracks since 27th December, not much has happened. I had to wait for at least some things to happen, because a plain “nothing much has happened” update would’ve been quite boring, no?
But soon a lot will happen. Tomorrow the new rookies will arrive and we’ve been preparing to take them on.
