vvizard, how goes it with your service.
Love the fluffy dice are they standard military issue?
all the best
Well, It's going fine. Had a lot of great service since Christmas. My team even got to "hang around" with the United States Marine Corps for two weeks, when they participated in a big NATO-exercise in Norway. We my team where giving their main CO communications during the exercise. It was really cool, and their colonel gave me a "Commanders coin" for great work when we left them at the end of the exercise. That really made my own captain jealous, cause he didn't get one =) In Norway, as opposed to the U.S, a sergant is the lowest ranking officer, and you therefore need to go through officer-training (either one year at officer school, or a couple months additional education after finishing your drafted year)
The last months, and until July 14th, I'm one of 21 guys/and girls from my battalion who've been offered officer training, and therefore are having a lot of education and exams in things such as leadership, phsycology etc, and if I pass my remaining exams, I'll be a sergant* from 14th July. Will then try to apply for one of the five open sergant-positions in this battalion (communications) next year, along with a position in the "Electronic Warfare" company located another battalion (Intelligence).
If I get one of those, I'm happy to stay in the army for another year or two. If I don't, well then it's back to studies next year So no matter what happens, I'm looking forward to next year
So greetings from corporal Hoel :
No, the dices are unfortunately not issued :/
