As it turns out, the latest sign in time at CRC (Conus Replacement Center) for medical providers is noon on Monday. Since my flight did not leave Heathrow till 1330 on Monday and went
That was Heathrow -> Atlanta -> Columbus -> CRC Bus (which waited for the last flight of the evening) – Ft Benning. CRC is in the way back 40 and is a 25 minute drive on lousy roads from the front gate – you can just about guess that I did not make that deadline.
Which means that they want me to wait and join the next class on Sunday. I am being cheerful, I am being nice. I may just try stuborn next. I really hate the idea of sitting here and doing nothing for 3 1/2 days.
Never mind I could have filled out paperwork this morning and gone to CIF today and the range on Thurs and finished up all the briefings on Sun and Monday.
They are having major concept problems with the idea of Yom Kippur, not traveling on Friday night/Sat and otherwise not automatically falling in line. The Veggie MREs proved much less of a problem.
I managed to catch the shuttle bus (White painted Blue Bird. Here I am again on the contract bus to nowhere) to the PX, found the commissary and the clothing sales store. Currently at the library getting extended minute by minute on the computers there.I found the hospital. I am hoping to be able to track down Rabbi Huerta this afternoon, make arrangements for this weekend and finish off the rest of the stupid courses.
I should not have a problem getting on email here tomorrow as well. There is also potentially computer access in the dayroom at CRC. I will do the online courses that were not do-able on my computer. I might just also be able to do my updated course for Family Practice. Now there is a thought – finished before screaming in pain on 30 Dec!
PS – if you want to be on my direct email distro list like the last time leave me a message or send me an email and I will add you. There may be occassional pictures here. None there. Or you can have both. I am really, really flexible.
Both places please. What ugly part of the world are they sending you to this time?
Sounds like your life is really complicated at the moment. keep us posted.
Sounds like you are having loads of fun on your end.
Ah… you bring back such fond memories of things I have conveniently forgotten when I think about my time in uniform. 🙂
that sums up my reasons for leaving the Army.
No doubt the inflexibility is due to DA civilians who only do exactly what they have to…
Enjoy Georgia while you are waiting.
Give us your address, as soon as you have one, so we can send you a package!
me, too, please.
Am not fully understanding though, what is going on at the moment??
Sitting at a US Army post in Georgia. Processing for deployment. The Army does it this way since they are supposed to insure that everyone has completed all the mandatory training on the list, has the proper uniforms, immunizations, and qualifications. They run a one week cycle. As it is set up, people dropping in at odd times just does not work.
