This is my final post before I ship to basic! Everything is packed, car is sold, and several goodbyes made. It has been a hectic day and I was mellow and zen all day until mid-afternoon when the nerves started to set in.
But sitting there in my hotel room I am calm again. I’ve been chatting with my roommate which is also going into the Air Force so that’s pretty cool. I’ll keep this short and sweet since I have a 0430 wake up call. See you in 8.5 weeks!
Yesterday I went into the recruiting office to sign my contract. I am now officially official. 74 days until I ship for BMT.
Today was a friend’s graduation from BMT. It seems that a lot of our military endeavors have been moving on parallels. Her last DEP meeting was the same day I had my first. I received a letter from her at BMT the same day I found out my job and ship date. We both started our enlistment process with the Army and switched to the Air Force for various reasons. Signed my contract on the first day of her graduation ceremonies. Very coincidental but still fun! I hope to be able to meet up with her some day in the operational Air Force. Congratulations, Airman S!
