Friendly tip for Soldiers:

Get a P.O. Box

This has made my life easier for DECADES. Everywhere we get stationed, I get a PO Box - forward my old PO Box to the new one and gradually update the address on all my bill accounts.

That way, whether you stay on Post or off post, your mailing address doesn’t change!

On-post events & announcements.
Updated info on EVERY SINGLE SERVICE on post.

Also, one of the more important features is a "HOTLINES" button that has the important "helping my soldiers out" numbers.

If anything, download it for that. Hope it helps!

Army Rangers...

Sometimes, after a great morning run and workout - you feel on top of the world...and you wonder:

"Is THIS what it feels like to be an Army Ranger??" πŸ§πŸ€”πŸ€₯

Then you watch a video like this...and think - "Damn. They're intense."

Would you voluntarily go through that training?

I tell you, it would have been great to learn a trade. Especially if I only had to do that job 1 weekend a month.

Here's a Future Soldier's review - I love her last sentences haha

We aren't "as scary" as we look ya'll! lol

You know, if I had a "do-over"...

I would have LOVED to learn a trade.

2020 - Rules for joining the Army as a Prior Service Applicant

When recruiting Prior Service applicants (those with 1 or more days in the service)...we have to play by DIFFERENT rules.

When coming back into service, from the Army/Navy/Marines/Air Force/Guard/etc...

Do you keep your same rank?

Do you need to go through MEPS again?

Do you keep your old MOS or get a new one?

Do you have the same options as when you first enlisted?

On-Base Family Housing

Family Housing on base.

My wife and kids LOVED it. Unfortunately, being a recruiter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas - there isn't a base near me.

No rent due. No electricity bills. No Lawn maintenance costs. No water bills. I think I may make myself cry.

Here's an example of on-base housing:

We all start serving for various individual reasons.

We keep serving for various individual reasons.

At the end of it all - we know we served TOGETHER.

That's why you'll see two Veterans, generations apart, come together in brother/sisterhood - like they've known each other their entire lives.

It's a beautiful thing to experience.

What you don't know about the U.S. FLAG

Jim "The Flag Guy" Rodriguez enlightens us on some U.S. Flag history. Some good. Some bad...-ish.

Founded in Waxahachie, TX - the F.L.A.G. Program is dedicated to educating young minds with the history and etiquette of our nation's flag.

The Fly Lower And Gather (FLAG) Program is currently in 37 schools across Texas and Arizona and is always looking for supporters!

You can find more information at: www.TheFlagProgram.org

Can't wait...THIS SUNDAY is PASSION SUNDAY:

1) Behind the Scenes w/Aaron Rapoza

Live Q & A with SSG Aaron Rapoza talking about the Army Combatives Program. His passion as an Army Combatives Master Trainer is the deepest I've ran into yet!

2) Flag Day (That's right, as in Old Glory)

I'll be livestreaming with Jim Rodriguez, "the Flag Guy" himself. He's the founder and President of The FLAG Program, a non-profit organization founded in Waxahachie, Texas that is dedicated to informing the next generation of Old Glory's history, etiquette and patriotic symbolism. There is NOTHING this (cough) young man doesn't know. His passion for sacred history will blow...your...mind.

3) Army's 245th Birthday! I'm allllll about celebrating birthdays. :-) Yep. Pretty passionate about that. Soldiers around the country and the DFW will be running 2.45 miles dedicated to our beloved U.S. Army.

The GREATEST GENERATION.

Imagine this:

It's the middle of World War 2. Everyone's scared.

-

You are 18, 19, 20 - not even old enough to drink.

Maybe you've just graduated high school. Maybe you had just started your first year of college. Maybe you volunteered or maybe you got drafted.

You definitely DO NOT care what color of skin your buddy has or where they were born or what political affiliation they preferred.

-

You are one of the 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops about to storm a 50-mile stretch of HEAVILY FORTIFIED beach coast of the Normandy region of France.

It's the largest amphibious assault in American history.

Over 2,000 American casualties and countless more MIA.

-

Average life expectancy: less than 30 seconds.

As your amphibious assault vehicle approaches the beach, you begin to hear the clinking of enemy rounds hitting your boat. All that protects you at that moment is a ramp that will drop any minute now - so you can jump into chest deep water - and swim to the beach front.

-

Assuming you made it to the beach...

Average life expectancy: less than 2 minutes.

-

Still. They went. Still. They fought. Still. The GREATEST GENERATION.

God Bless them. God Bless them all.
