Common Task and Training

11/19/04: Today I did CTT training with the 818th a lot of it was tasks I?m not required to do, but I wanted to know about the newer weapons in the army inventory and brush up on some others. The MK 19 is pretty amazing. It?s a machinegun grenade launcher that fire about 100 grenades per minute. In other news, my orders finally were cut and made their way to me so I feel like the end is very near. I noticed that the ?period of active duty? is for 545 days or 18 months. That?s a little disturbing but my old CONUS orders said 725 or just under two years so I guess 18 months is okay. Amy made arrangements for me to go home over thanksgiving. It?s really expensive, but we decided that it would be worth it given the circumstances.
