I got out of the Army in October 2007, and went back to being a Paramedic. I am now working as an RN in Case Management.

A Blood Red Moon

So, to delineate the Army from civilian life, I have come up with a maxim. In the real world, people do their jobs and try their best to help you. In the Army, people will work hard just to avoid doing their jobs, and do everything they can not to help you. There are two things you can't count on...the weather, and other people. We still haven't quit combat operations, as a matter of fact, we are doing more real-world assaults now than we have in the past 11 months. The word right now is we will be turning our equipment over to our relief at the end of the month, and then will have a week give or take a few, to go home. If you think the U.S. is pulling out of Iraq soon, you are sadly mistaken. I have seen over 6,000 meters of fiber optic cable buried on our camp this month, and they are starting construction on the biggest chow hall in Iraq. A KBR contractor told me they signed a contract to remain until 2010. I guess old G.W. is laughing his ass off at all the protesters. The Iraqis on the other hand, are more than ready to see us go home. That includes the U.S. supporters in general.
