army life.

I would just like to make this short and to the point. I am glad my husband is not an idiot or prone to getting in trouble. I love the army life. I hate that somehow we have ended up in the vortex of stupidity here. 7 demotions in the 6 months I have been here. Out of 42 people. Can we do the math? If not I will tell you that is 1 of every 6 people have gone DOWN in rank. Just in case you are a civilian, I'll let you know that these people are heading in the wrong direction. I shake my head at them all. (Not hard enough to give myself a case of Shaken Adult sister says that's a big problem. haha.)

I just want to be in a decent platoon. Please? Doesn't even have to be a good one. Maybe we should just change his MOS (not a clue as to what it stands for in civilian speak, but its his job title) to engineer. Or doctor. Or cook...anything. Or heavy machine operator. He does have his CDL license....I'm gonna go bring this up to the husband now...see what he thinks. He's always willing to listen to my really good ideas. Or at least pretend to.


  1. my daddy was army lifer...and stupid people irritate him too :)


  2. Why do people act stupid? I just don't get it. Why do things that will obviously get you in trouble...especially bad enough to get demoted.

  3. So now I'm just skimming your blog because I'm liking reading about your husband's work as well as the commissary and PX. (I have a number of posts on that coming soon - I hope they don't all turn to rants!)

    Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know, MOS stands for Military Occupational Specialty. :)
