Well, it's coming down to the main objective. I'm now on week 7 at OCS, and wow. Never thought mud and water could be so much fun...though extremely tiring. After a couple of hikes and a night land navagation course, we ended the week with the endurance course. A run combined with some stiff obsticles and ends with fording chest deep water...all the while you are working to keep your barrel out of the dirt and have a clean weapon. During the thing, you swear you're going to die. Afterwards, you can't believe you just did that. Good training.

This next week will be tough physically, but the nasty one is week 8 with some very important graded events...ones that will make or break your chances at getting that commission.

I still feel pretty good...especially at the prospect of seeing my wife after all this time. It's tough being away, but in the end, I think it'll be worthwhile.
