    You'll be better off if you don't worry about what will happen in the future but concentrate on the present. "Sufficient are the troubles of the day." If you dwell too much about what will happen tomorrow you could screw up the tasks that you have to accomplish today.

    Ah so, Grasshopper. Now you see the light & understand.

    Keep the old SEAL saying to heart - "you don't gotta like it. You just gotta do it".

    Almost done! The rest is easy, lol. A little line tying, a refreshing drop & a nice walk in the woods & it's nothing but a fond memory.

    Do you believe the hype that AAS is the hardest 10 days in the Army?

    Well it's the only school I've been to but no, I mean BCT and AIT were much harder than this. Sure it's challenging but the hardest 10 days in the Army? That's a bit fanciful

    I've wanted to go to Air Assault School my entire Army career. At Ft Knox they told me I would have the opportunity since it was only a few hours from Ft Campbell. So I brought it up repeatedly, bugged them about it for nearly two years. But nope. Nobody cared. Be lucky you get to go.
    TANKER - That dusty, crusty, grease-covered, dirty, sweaty, bright-eyed, fuzzie-faced,
    haircut-needing, beer-drinking, underrated, over-worked, underpaid,
    oversexed, little shit, who can take a tank and do more battlefield damage in
    ten minutes than a Grunt squad can do all day.

    If you ain't Armor, you ain't shit.

    Finally back home. I didn't end up making time for the 12 mile ruck march, I'm kinda bummed but I'm going to work on it and go back to knock it out as soon as I can within the next 6 months. Phases 1,2, and 3 are in the books though, if anyone has any questions as to what to expect on the tests, school SOP, etc. I'd be glad to help.
