Squadron Officer School
I drove down to Maxwell Air Force Base this weekend to start Squadron Officer School, otherwise known as "5 weeks of working my ass off in order to make Major."
Not sure what to expect, so wish me luck down here in 'Bama. So far the 100% humidity and 500 degrees isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I guess the nation of Qatar was indeed the most hot and humid place on earth I've ever been to. Southern Alabama isn't even close.
Here's just a sample of what I was told to avoid doing while in class. Obviously this happened before the term 'precision guided' came into play.

That's hilarious! Wish I'd known you were driving instead of flying - would have bought you a beverage of your choice, as long as it was a big glass of iced tea.7:30 PM

I wish I were the hitter versus the hittee! That's so funny!!!
In EUCOM we (E-7 and below) had to pull Force Protection. The only dipshit that fired off a round in the clearing barrel was, drum roll, Air Force. No, it wasn't me! But actually popping off a round isn't THAT easy! Of course it's funny because no one got hurt, but it's not that easy to chamber a round, get out of Safe Mode and squeeze the trigger! I wonder if he did it on purpose....
I'm gonna watch the video again....
During the '92 election, we had a friend (much older than we, by the way) who was doing Color Guard (or whatever you call it) on one of Bill Clinton's campaign stops.
he sneezed while Clinton was right in front of him and popped the future president on the head with the American flag.
Is it any wonder this guy didn't make it through ROTC?
Welcome to summertime in Alabama. Best of luck with your training.10:47 PM
