Nervous cadets are goofy

This was our first formation on the very first day of Air Assault ("Day Zero"). We didn't improve much over the next two weeks.

Air Assault- not THAT much of a schlep

Certainly the hardest ten days in the Army (on your groin). Not always pleasant, but really not that bad.

Enough goofy stuff happened there to fuel many, many posts. Suffice to say that us cadets weren't great at not being stupid, and that the NCOs there weren't great at being tolerant of that. Practically nobody failed (only 24 out of 213 dropped out) so we must have been doing something right... or the course was easier than usual.

Most importantly, I finally got some bling to put on my uniform. Flat-chested no more!

What I actually do in class

School's about to end, so I though I'd put up some of my favorite (clickable) doodles up before I burn all my notebooks. They may not look like it, but some of these drawings were sufficiently time-consuming that they significantly affected my grades. You can see that slideshows about the civil war gave me a lot of practice drawing men with mustaches.

I have no idea what happened in the Ottoman Empire for the entire 18th century because of the sheet with a drawing of a tank.
