Now that I actually have orders I can have our household stuff shipped and stored at the Army's expense (not ours), and I can begin the process of applying for housing at Fort Campbell. It also verifies that I will enter active duty with the rank of Captain.
I report to the chaplain school at Fort Jackson, Columbia, South Carolina on July 12. I will finish the school on August 28.
Then I drive straight to For Campbell, KY. I have to report there on August 31. I still don't know what BTC or BN (Brigade Combat Team or Battalion) I'll be assigned to. Looks like I might have to wait until I report down there to find that out.
I talked to the housing office down there yesterday and they said for a 2-bedroom duplex the wait is 30-45 days. We will have to navigate that issue when we get down there.
Right now I am reading 2 books with my free time:
I'll give an update on both of these after I finish them and have some time to reflect. War and the Soul will take a little longer to digest and evaluate. A Table in the Presence is a little quicker and a very interesting read.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Lord Stanley would be proud.
