    Good luck.

    relaxin' Jackson...when i went there for my deployment improcessing, the AIT area was something else...cellphone was allowed, stress cards...

    EOD...i got to see some of the stuff they did in Iraq...crazy stuff.

    and i forgot how the bonus goes...you get like 50% first then the other 50% after like 2 years or something.

    Good luck on that.

    I still have trouble deciding if I want to go into the Air Force or not. No way I can be a fighter pilot, but I still like all that stuff. Well my plan is just finish college first.

    Anywho, hope nothing too dramatic happens to ya, but if it does, you kick some ass, you got that? :)
