The Reading List was integrated into A Few Good Links page.

This is one of the things I figured my CO was doing while he was “at Regiment” because he was over there more than his company. But this only occured for one week so I wasn’t too disturbed by such an idea. I even joked about it with my Lieutenant who in turn always joked that he was going to leave at 1400 to play golf, which I’m pretty sure he has done a few times.

Putting in for Voluntary Enlisted Early Release Program (VEERP) is like a scavenger hunt for signatures. At times it felt like I was a detective looking for a suspect to solve a murder case.

Why can’t people with little to no time in their contracts just leave? Nothing is ever that simple. Because in the military, behind every simple task is a mountain of paperwork.
