Reminders of Armyisms

The Army, especially above the company level is such a dysfunctional animal as far as staffing and resourcing goes. I often wonder how we get anything done that requires coordination at those levels. From what I see, it seems that some rep at the company level tends to step up and handle the coordinations, because no organization on Earth subscribes more stringently to the “Peter principle” than the United States Army.

So often it goes completely unnoticed and unrewarded. I love my war fighting job. I hate my admin job.

Starting the morning

It should be 107 degrees today, and the 73rd day over 100 this summer. I figure I need to take advantage of the relative cool before all that hits, so Im enjoying my coffee, and my dog, out here while its only 93.

I feel dehydrated today, but I think its an effect of allergies, and allergy medicine more than really being dehydrated, but my eyes feel dry and puffy, and I absolutely HATE that feeling.
