Twice the citizen, 85% the soldier

I'm still alive. Just quiet lately.

I apparently have been quiet on here because I seem to find twitter much more satisfying. However I do keep up on reading everyone I follow, so I'm pretty up to date on you all.

I've been busy, too. The Army is busy, the training year is well underway and I've gone back to being a platoon commander which is interesting if a little unfamiliar. I don't mind it though, better than some boring staff job anyhow. The thing is I have a lot of very inexperienced troops and a lot of very unfit troops, neither are good things. I discovered this during live fire jungle lanes this weekend. My staff and I were less than impressed by the lack of basic soldier skills.

And of course we are moving on from individual & pairs lanes to group and section live fire rather than working on those basic skills. But that's the plan, and I'll go with it.

Work is going pretty well, too. It's been steady and I'm starting to build on momentum and so on, I'm generally happy with how things are going, and I think next year will be really good, allowing us to get on with our lives rather than the rut of being stuck trying to get things moving here.

So that's the basics for me for now, and I will try to be a little better about it. Cheers!
