Well we received some documents that are kinda Mikes orders through email yesterday. Mike was reading them but didn't read them and so he walks away and I sit down to look at them. It was only 3 pages so I scroll down to the bottom of the page and the very last sentence was all capitalized and in bold lettering so it caught my attention. It said something like UPON COMPLETION OF TRAINING AT FT. BENNING YOUR FIRST DUTY STATION WILL BE
So most people would be really excited about this but we weren't, in fact we were pretty disappointed. Mike was in the top 1% of students so he should've had his number one choice which was NOT Hawaii. We wanted Ft. Bragg, Italy, New York, Kentucky, then finally 5th we put Hawaii not even thinking we would get it. We were hoping to go somewhere that would be good for his career, not that Hawaii won't be we just really wanted Bragg or Italy because they have better training, or so we've been told. I think that most people want Hawaii so they can play and relax not so they can work their tails off because they are serious about their careers. Anyway we've had time to think about it and we are now fine with it and excited about it. It will be a fun adventure for us, Mike will most likely be deployed but it will still be fun! I'm pretty pasty white so I better start tanning now! We will most likely be done with training at Ft. Benning the end of next year sometime so we are thinking that we will have a tropical Christmas next year!! Save your money folks and come visit cause you have a place to stay!!
