It's starting to come down to crunch time for me to decide what I want to do with my next two years in the Marines. I was offered a slot to Squad Leaders Course, but I turned it down because I still think I might leave the company to look for greener pastures, and, although I really want to go to that school, I couldn't justify taking that training from someone else. Our lieutenant decided to send Washington instead, who some of you know (Katie and Lauren, he's the 19 year old you tried sneaking into a bar in LA, he says hello).
I am still juggling my options. Coming back with the squad would be great and a solid choice, but I can't help but think I can get somewhere else. I'm very seriously considering taking that. Recon is still on the table, they're hurting for bodies bad. MARSOC looks like it could be more challenging than I originally thought to cross over to (although I did get my secret clearence, thanks for keeping all those skeletons in the closet for me).
Not sure how it's all going to play out, but the bottom line is I'm probably gonna be back here in Iraq before too long.
