Hey all,

In my 3rd week at Rigger course at Ft Lee, VA.

Thanx all for support thru Bassic Training!
Will post more extensively over Memorial Day weekend, as this costs per minute here.

Passed the T10-1C test w/ 99 (forgot to log the d-bag #) and I jump that chute on the 23d.

Passed the MIRPS reserve chute test with 100.

Thanx again!

Don Carter, OUT

Packed my first live chutes (MC1-1C) today for others to jump, instructor picked only 3 of us to do so.

The quality/maturity of the new soldiers is truly disgusting. Apathetic, disrespectful, blah blah.

We jump (my first since '89) our test T10's on next Thursday, and the MC1's the following week (tailgate blast from a C130)!

Talk back soon,
Don Out!

Whoa...let me see if I got this right... you used to be an 11H and reclassed to be a rigger? I must be missing something here.  Can I ask WHY?  I'm going to assume you were at Bragg.  What Bn? White Devil here.  I mean jeez... things couldn't have been that bad, could they? [;)]

Hey... just read your other posts.  Sorry, bro. That really sucks that you couldn't come back an 11H, especially now that we're all bravos now, and we've got that new ITAS.  As a jumpmaster I do know that we NEED quality riggers though.  I can certainly relate with you about the new "soldiers" that have been showing up here.  These kids SUCK.  Its like taking care of my 4 yr old.  I don't know what has happened to society since I left the civilian world, but I KNOW I wasn't that fvcked up when I got here.  Anyway, I'm not one to bitch so best of luck, see you at Green Ramp. Strike Hold. ABN ATW.
