Plenty to Catch Up With

So, I'm finally back to Killeen after plenty of fun with Muddy Buddy, a most incredible wedding, and some time at my folks place. I will get back into the swing of things here in the next couple of days and get my posts back up. This week will be a different one, not just in that it is a 4-day work week (YAY!) but in that I will move from the office to the classroom to start a 3-week police office certification course that I am taking so I am more prepared to understand what my Soldiers are doing on a day-in and day-out basis once I take command of the Law Enforcement Detachment. It is interesting because I used to say that I never wanted that for a command, then I ended up asking for it. I used to think everything was the line combat support unit...but that is all I have done for 6 years and I honestly wanted a change in jobs and knowledge. Command at every level requires leadership of Soldiers, dealing with maintenance, supply, and most importantly training and taking care of Soldiers. I will do that regardless of what type of command, and I feel this one will diversify me with more knowledge that I do not have. So, I'll be excited come September.

The wedding was incredible. My friend that got married is one of the most generous, full of life, and incredible woman I know. I was so honored to be a bridesmaid and I am more excited to support her and her new husband in their new journey of marriage. Not only was the wedding day just perfect, to include the weather, but the whole week was great. I got to meet up with friends I had not seen in a long time, and meet new friends. It was truly evident what wonderful people these two friends of mine are that got married as friends from literally all over the country--Hawaii included--traveled all the way to Seattle to participate and enjoy the wedding. It was just great...truly great. I will post some pics later this week.

Okay, briefly back to Muddy Buddy--here are some of the truly "dirty" pictures! :)
