Classes, posts, coverage, writing, Finns, golf and quote

I just received my transcripts from my undergraduate days, since on my spare time I might teach a class or two to soldiers. I did not graduate with honors, more like with a diploma, but I could teach the basics of mathematics or other humanities and sciences. I tell the troops they need to be enrolled in a correspondence course or be teaching so they will keep busy. Idle minds are the play ground of the devil as old saying goes and I believe it. I don’t want any disciplinary problems, therefore teaching or taking a class is a good way to keep busy and not get depressed over missing your family. Also I tell the enlisted taking a class is a great way of finding out what interest you and may make you a more well-rounded person or put more money on the table when you become a civilian. Last, classes can be converted into promotion points.

If you don’t see any post for a few days continuously, don’t worry I am in transit to the Afghan theater of operations. I will be learning how to sleep on hanger floors.

Here is the Stars and Stripes coverage of the unit’s casing ceremony.

Great writing from Iraq from a soldier.

Guess who is next to send more troops to Afghanistan? The Finns! Maybe they will construct a sauna and bring some Lapin Kulta.

Does this mean that Afghanistan is on the road to being a modern country? The Kabul Golf Club just opened for the second season. Will Tiger Woods be playing there soon?

Hey, just wanted to say thanks for your service, Bob. It means a lot to me that people like you are willing to deploy to a foreign land to defend our freedom, and to help get a country back on its feet.

Also, thanks for blogging. I know you're going to be extremely busy in the year ahead, but I know I will appreciate any tidbits of news I can get out of Afghanistan, since the MSM has seen fit to forget about it.

Stay safe, and I'll be anxiously awaiting your return to the blogosphere.
