Update!I graduated from MCT (Marine Combat Training) a few weeks ago. It was pretty cool, for the most part. I got to shoot some really cool guns, the M-240, M-249, and the M-203 and throw a real grenade.
So now I'm in Rhode Island for my MOS school. There is a Private Tucker in my school.
StuffI had a great Thanksgiving with my family. And the weekend before that I went to visit some other part of my family in Fredericksburg, TX. I went to Luchenbach and drank too much $4 Shiner while watching a great Texas Country musician that I'd never heard of before. (Thomas Michael Riley, he's wrote songs for Gary P. Nunn, has 10 CDs and over 500 original songs). I finally got to play some Halo 4 during Thanksgiving weekend because my brother brought the xbox back from college with him.
Yesterday I went and ran the Initial Strength Test for a Master Sergeant (E8) and had my best run ever, 12:22 for mile and a half, and the rest of it was good enough so that I am definitely going to MCRD on the tenth!
