You probably noticed that there hasn’t been a lot of new content from me in the past few…months. I’ve been a little busy, attending Air Force basic military training. Now I’m at technical school for my AFSC (that’s what the AF calls an MOS/rate in case you didn’t know) learning all about being Security Forces. That was my first choice for jobs, because I wanted a career field that was related to what I do as a civilian. I’m not very far into training, but the stuff we’ve covered so far has all been firearms related, first qualifying on the M9 then spending the next two days learning the manual of arms for the M4 carbine.
To answer all the usual questions I’ve gotten when this comes back up, I’ll just lay some bullet points on you guys, my faithful readers and friends.
- I’m in the Reserves
- I’m an E3
- I am going to continue Gun Nuts
- Yes, going to BMT at 32 years old was weird
I also plan on getting regula updates going on the site again. Don’t expect much during the week for now, as I need to balance out my academic load and figure out exactly how much studying I’m going to need to do in order to accomplish my goal of making top graduate. But I have (most) weekends free, so I plan on dropping updates in there. Yes, I will talk about military firearms training.
As far as the “why” of going back to the military at my age, that is a long and very personal post that I’ll probably save for later. When I have more time, which isn’t today. In the meantime, thank you everyone for staying with the blog. Keep coming back for new and interesting content!
