A few updates…
May 14, 2006
Well, I check my AKO email the other day and found my confirmation for a seat in BNCOC. So it looks like I’ll be heading to Ft. Huachuca, AZ in mid July. I’m pretty excited about this, I love any type of training the Army can throw at me. Looks like immediately after BNCOC I should be going to the E6 promotion board as well.
I have just completed reading “The Face of Battle” by John Keegan. It was a pretty good read, unfortunately I find my reading interests are more towards biographies/autobiographies. I like to read about specific people, and look into improving myself following some of their own strategies. I am slowly working on reading the entire U.S. Army Chief of Staff’s Professional Reading List. The next book I wanted to read was “Patton: A Genius for War”, but I could not find it. Instead of that, today I purchased “Patton: A Biography”. I have gone through the first two chapters in record time, altough it is a rather short book.
