i received an email from my army unit requesting 100 volunteers to go to germany or alaska from June '07-'08. i'm looking at germany...i can't handle the cold well, sorry alaska. i really don't know if i should volunteer. i always said if theres one thing i wanted to do while i was in the army, was get stationed in germany. it's free living in germany and i'd be able to travel around europe for basically nothing. thats awesome. but but but...it's another year. and trust me, i know a year goes by so fast but its a whole year...kind of long. i mean this past year i've gone to college and just fucked around. so why not pack up my bags again? i guess i'm just scared to leave my family...if you've read any of this blog, you know what happened when i left last time. but if i do go, i could possible get out of going to iraq again...however, i could go to germany and right when i get back they could send me to iraq (and then thats two years away from home/my family)...or i could do a few months in germany and then be told, hey guess what? you're going to finish your tour in iraq. goddamn the army is a pain in my ass. anyways, the email said we'd be trained in "law and order". i'm not 100% sure what the means but we'd be working with the military police. haha watch it be gate guard or some bullshit. wouldn't surprise me. ohh i don't know. all this gives me such a headache. heres a word of advice...never join the army when you're 17.
so what do you guys think? just stay where i am and see what happens? but i feel like if i sit and wait, i'm going to get fucked. i use to do volunteer work at a VA hospital and all the army guys use to tell me, "never volunteer for anything." maybe i should just listen to them.
