    So I just got back from ITB, I reclassed to 11B. It seems like I'm going straight to the desert once I report to my duty station. Fucked up thing is they didn't give me any advance info. I had to call my transition liaison to let them know I'm reporting in and he told me over the phone that I'll be there to inprocess for about 3 weeks and then I'm heading over to Kuwait then Iraq... I hate this sorry ass last minute communication shit the Army does. If I never called, I wouldn't know until I got there. So much for settling in.

    Now I'm trying to get some equiptment for the desert before I report to Alaska... I was planning to relax during my 2 weeks of leave I have right now but now I have to make sure I'm good to go to the sandbox... :madfawk:
