Well... more of the same...

Well... I'm sitting here at the INTERNET café. I've been busy all week with training. We had training all day today and after that, I finally made it to where I can get on the net. I sort of feel like I am in Atlanta right now. Downtown Atlanta, because there's a weird homeless guy sitting near to me as I type this.

I we have been doing Blue Force Tracker and commo training all week. We set up the mini-comsat station today. It was pretty cool. I was made the commo guy today. Not because I'm an expert at radios and computers, but rather because I'm kind of technically oriented (nerdy). I honestly don't know diddly squat about all of these new radios, but I guess I will before long.

Oh... I was just about to sign off because life just isn't extremely blog worthy lately, but I just thought of something... due to pain. Thursday morning we got up very early, we went to the gym and player basketball for PT. I actually made a shot (a rare site) and was having a good time when I decided to get in front of a Major (for now I'll call him MAJ High Speed) who was running full speed. His elbow hit me in the ribs... the ribs that had been busted about 8 months ago. So, I once again have busted ribs. It hurts to laugh... breath... exist... Oh well.

Oh and we started doing army combatives. Basically, it's Brazilian Jujitsu. I have learned a few chokes and different grappling techniques. It was cool, and I'd like to do a lot more. It's funny that I have done martial arts for years (not lately though) and I never got really hurt. I play basketball or soccer and get clobbered and break ribs.

That's all for now.
