I had my last full drill this weekend. I still have some work to do with them during the week and next month we will have the Dining Out, but basically, I’m done. I feel a little sad, but mostly relieved. A guy I served with in
is thinking about taking over the command. He is an excellent man and a fine officer. I would be happy if I could leave my people in good hands. Iraq
Tomorrow, I am going to MS for the first reenactment in a very long time. I am a little nervous. I’m out of shape and unaccustomed to all of the military encumbrances on person and saddle, but I’ll be all right, I reckon.
There is still a lot of work to do on the actual ranch. I feel a little guilty running off to play, but hopefully some good will come out of it. Maybe it will help develop the horse end of the business, who knows?
Finally, I got the details on the Post 9/11 GI Bill. As long as I take 7 hours a semester, I can get over 1500 dollars a month. History would be my choice, but when I get the degree, then what? It won’t make me any money, just help support me now.
