It's about time...

Yeah, I guess it's about time I update this thing. There's been some pretty big events in my life since my last post. The first big event was recieving my mission call. I actually opened the letter via email, since I had put my Ohio address on the mission papers. Mom and Dad (without peeking!) scanned the letter and sent me the email. I had a mission prep class right before I was expecting to open the letter, so a handful of my mission prep classmates wanted to come over and get a feel for what the big moment is like. Here's a picture of everybody waiting for me to open the attachment. Oh yeah, I'm going to the CONNECTICUT HARFTFORD MISSION!

As if that's not exciting enough, we had the Ranger Challenge for ROTC this past weekend. We competed in several military-style events, such as a modified PT (physical training) test, one-mile casualty carry, written LAND NAV test, one-rope bridge, field LAND NAV course, hand grenade assault course, MEDEVAC 9-LINE and casualty evaluation test, and a 10k ruck march with all of our gear. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
