11. I have no idea where I'm going.
I inprocess and go to Fort Bragg. After that, I don't know. But I have a good guess, since half the Army is in Iraq on any given day.

I was an infantry officer, took an early retirement, which required me to stay in the IRR. I wouldn't have any problem being called up ifwe had a rational government, which needed me for a valid purpose. But being called up for Bush's Folly is painful.
