82. Yeah, you really have to be ready for a whole lot of humiliation if you
join up, as well as a willingness to give everything you have up to and including your life.

I can remember working during a deployment and getting no sleep, to the point where everything seemed funny to me and I'd laugh hysterically at nothing at all. I figure I was about one more sleepless night away from outright hallucinating, when the last bird was off to Somalia and we finally got some downtime.

There are some tough things about life in the military and I really do respect why a lot of people (probably most people) would say "Not no but HELL no" to life in the military.

I really did hate doing the urinalysis thing. I really prefer to be in private when I pee. But it was only a couple times a year usually so it wasn't like it was every week.
