Week Eleven

Our Company Commanding Officer informed us that there are 34 training days left of Warrant Officer Basic Course. That's no joke! Time is starting to feel accelerated around here. For that, we are thankful. Just two more weeks left in Phase III (one of which is going to be a week in the field). Monday... Continue Reading →

Week Ten

Many thanks to those who prayed for the test that happened this week. I passed! We are now in what is called Phase III. According to our schedule, we have three weeks of Phase III left before we get into, believe it or not, Phase IV. That's the home stretch. Honestly, this past week was... Continue Reading →

From what the instructors have indicated, this will be a full, busy, and important week of evaluation. We... Continue Reading →

Week Six

Have you ever been going through a busy week and found that time flew by? Or maybe you have been so busy it felt like the week would not end. Although this past week was only four work days, it felt like we would never see the end. What a week! It's not that the... Continue Reading →

Week Five

The time between holiday weekends has been five weeks. That is the amount of time I have been attending Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC). It is very easy to lose track of time here since we are moving through the course at a rapid rate. Some of us have joked that it feels like we... Continue Reading →

Something Different

It was 12 years ago that I had the "itch" to enlist in the Marine Corps. Honestly, it made the most sense at the time considering circumstances and thought process. You can read all about that here. I re-read that post recently and it's interesting to see the similarities and differences in thinking, career progression... Continue Reading →
