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.

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!
