Where is Your AIT? Yuma?

I forgot to update this last week but it's been busy as hell. I graduated basic with no problems and moved on to AIT. So far it's a lot harder than basic ever was. It's gonna be a challenge, but I never had a challenge in basic so I guess this is what I need. Basic didn't really prepare me for AIT whatsoever, especially not physically. I'm getting my ads kicked at pt. the elevation is a killer and I thought I was gonna pass out during our run the other day. I was suckin wind. But I'm looking on the bright side that I'll be in great shape by graduation. I'm already passing my pt test by regular army standards but I'll probably leave here close to maxing it. Our Co commander is a pt freak. He challenged us to beat his pt score after our first pt test and we'd get a coin if we did. Well he scored a 389 out of 300 so we'll see.

I also was lucky enough to get put in the strictest company in the brigade. Our SOP is a bit more dense than the other companies. It sucks right now, but I'll have the satisfaction of knowing I worked harder and turned out better than the others.

I dunno if ya'll care about this but I'm on a 3 hour floor guard shift and I'm bored as hell.

Thank you. I'm doing alright. I kept my nose clean all throughout basic and plan on doing the same here. It's really not hard if you just do what you're told.
