Day 16

Happy Labor day everyone! I am not sure whether I should count this as one of my days but I will. I hope everyone enjoyed their day off. I will admit that when you are away from your family, in training, I would prefer just to push right through. This morning started off bright and early at 0500 with me and a few other guys heading out to do some fishing. We went to Calaveras (which means skull) lake here in San Antonio. Talking with some local guys they explained that the lake got its name because there use to be a cemetery there and they excavated the bodies to put in the lake which is controlled by a dam. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of fish because we were unsuccessful in our quest to catch anything. The rest of the day was spent getting homework done and setting up our gear for the upcoming week. I also started reading the book American Sniper written by the late Chris Kyle, which has been a really good book so far. I also would like to welcome and thank all my new followers who joined me today, hopefully you enjoy my account of this exciting journey that I am on.


  1. Welcome to the blogging world. Was with your dad this last Saturday and gave us a heads up you had started a blog. Congrats on your journey into the Armed Services, I spent 20 years there and enjoyed every minute of it and thank you for stepping above the ordinary social media citizen and deciding to serve. Thank you for your service.

    1. Senior, thanks for the comment and the encouragement! Hope you enjoy the blog.
