I knew that would always be my greatest challenge though.
    LOL... roger that Solrider.. those damn kids!!.. Im sure you will do fine.. conditioning your body takes time, so don't worry your body will catch up with your mind which seems to be doing just fine. Maturity in a soldier is worth its weight in gold and it really helps in those tough training moments not to mention in the operational arena.. I have yet to hear about a soldier coming out of an AO with compliant about how maturity didn't help... Remember, under pressure.. a cool mind is a clear mind... a clear mind is an strong mind... and a strong mind can save your life by removing mistakes made in the moment by those less focused and mentally able..

    Keep us posted on how you go Solrider..

    Best Regards

    Hi everyone, I'm all done with Ft. Sill and am now at Ft. Leonard Wood for AIT. I really enjoyed my time at Sill and I miss my Battle Buddies and my Drill Sergeants very much! I sat around as a holdover for 2 weeks at AIT before Exodus because only 2 of us showed up for class...so...now we have been rolled into the next one which started today. Its going to be a long 5.5 months.
