I hadn't realized it had been so long since I had posted. Specialist Jacob has just returned to his battery after spending a month in heaven as he says. He was assigned to the General's pool of drivers for the month of July. The highlight of his month long detail was driving the wife of a foreign head of state around while the head of state went to meetings. He said she did some shopping and had several meeting on base with other wives. He was most impressed when he transported her to a fancy restaurant, the name of which I forget. Shortly after arriving she returned, asked Jacob if he had eaten which he hadn't. She left and returned with what he called a huge plate of food for him. He said that really caught him off guard.
I have stolen a bumper sticker seen on a Marine base by my friend and fellow blogger Citizen Soldier. Go to his web site for some more very interesting bumper stickers. Here is one for Jacob.
