Riot Training

This month my Guard unit trained for civil disturbances.
Since I will be getting out of the Army Oct. 13th I was able to turn my gear in this month. Because I had no gear I spent most of my day watching the training and taking pictures.I’m almost out it will be nice to not have one of my weekends taken up with the Guard anymore. I served my country and got out of the Army everything I could have wanted. I got my civil service bonus points for getting on a fire department, I made the rank of Sergeant, I have something like 15 different awards and medals, although my unit did not want to do the paper work to put my Bronze Star through I was put in for one, and I got to serve in the major conflict of my age coming home physically and mentally in one piece.

We are all thankful for that last phrase, physically and mentally in one piece! Nice pictures. You must have a good camera.
