Well Monsoon season is here. And I thought I had seen hard rain in Kentucky. Boy was I wrong. I have never seen or been in a monsoon in my life, but now I can honestly say I have and I hate it.

I had to drive about 1 1/2 hour to Camp Red Cloud today in horrible rain to give an invocation prayer for a 1SG who was leaving today. He had asked if I would mind coming up to give the prayer for him. He used to be my Platoon Sergeant. His name is SFC Best. I used to give him a hard time on our runs because he used to be a Ranger and I would beat him on the runs. He always made me do push ups when I said something though. I don;t like push-ups.

The guy in the very front is SFC Best. We had the ceremony iside of a big restaurant at CRC (Camp Red Cloud).

After work I was so hungry, so I went aroud and asked everyone if they wanted to go to Outback Steakhouse with me. I was craving some regular American style food, but everyone had already eaten. Well Maxwell went with me. I think he did it just for something to do because he had already ate. We got some steak and a bucket of beer and just sat and told stories. I liked that the best. It's been a long time since I've just sat down and joked around. We probably sounded like a bunch of old men sitting in rocking chairs on a porch, but it was nice. Afterwards I wen tstraight to bed when I got home, because I had gotten a tip that we were going to have an alert in the morning. Well It turns out the "tip" I got was nothing more than a bunch of crap, because I didn't get a single phone call.
