I'm starting to miss my internet. I'm stranded away from my platoon this week, doing the guard duty that all of us get stuck with at some point. I'm continuing to write on my personal computer, but it's difficult to get online, and often harder still to connect to Blogger. Basically, in my own long and rambling way, I'm excusing myself from consistent posting for a week or so. We'll see what happens.
Also, as readers of Badgers Forward know, I got my promotion to Specialist several days ago. That was a nice bright spot in the week for me, as I've been waiting for it for a long time. Add that to the Combat Action Badge I was awarded not too long ago, and my uniform is starting to get heavy. Don't worry- I'll try not to fall in any canals.
