That's so cool man. I think I love the FA community the more I hear about it. And we spend a good deal of time learning how to work with all kinds of people, superior and subordinate, because there are lost people and people trackin' it all on every level. I hope to a figurative God that I can be a good officer for my people in any situation. Thank you for the motivation.

Forget the uniforms lol, they change too often and the gear never keeps up. I just wish cadets were issued better rucks, the ones we have are dangerously shitty. I have maybe 2-3 months of anything close to "intense" field training and my right shoulder strap is about to tear off.

    while I'd have deployed if they'd told me to, I'm glad I didn't have to.

I know what you mean. I'm way too green to have any clue how I will fare on deployment, but I would be so ready to hit it when told it's time.
