A quick post to let anyone who cares know what I've been up to since graduating from Infantry School.
Signed in at Fort Riley, took a week of orientation, then signed back out for 10 days of free leave to look for an apartment. Not even sure yet what unit I'm assigned to, but it should be part of 3rd Brigade, 1st Armor Division, which is reflagging as 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division in September.
The base is pretty cool, very old, seriously heavy-duty stone buildings dating back to the 1850's. It's just nice to get off Sand Hill (Fort Benning), and Kansas isn't nearly as flat and boring as I was lead to believe.
Aziah and I actually found an Army Corps of Engineers Off-Road spot and did some muddin' in the Jeep. Time to buy some new tires, a winch, etc.
Checking out places in Manhattan, which is a university town (KSU) and a bit more expensive, but nicer, and Junction City, which is more of a soldier town and very close to base (20 minute commute versus 3 minute commute respectively). Both Aziah (my wife) and I are leaning towards Manhattan.
