    Well I posted this before, but the thread got lost and passed away. I enlisted for 9 months with possible extension. Maybe I will enlist for another several years, depends on how much I like it there.

    The first three months will be based in Bad Frankenhausen in Thuringia, EAST GERMANY. :ugh2:

    There I'll finish my basic training which will take three months. Marching 60 miles over the mountains with full equipment. :hs: Some military exercises and wargames.

    Then I will be moved to the beautiful city of Koblenz for duty. :)

    Any comments? Ask my anthing... :mamoru:

    Anything like Bratislava from EuroTrip?

    I haven't been out to what had been East Germany yet. I imagine the Sovs...er, Russians didn't do much to improve it.

    Good luck in the Army.

    Yeah, people have told me that they're sucking the life (and money) out of what had been West Germany. Kinda like Puerto Rico for us but on a much larger scale.

    I'm in Hessen, and everything is pretty nice.
