I recently decided to join Facebook.  This was after a friend of mine from England invited me to join.  I figured, "Why not?" I actually got in touch with one of my cousins, who I have not talked to much since before I joined the military.  She is a freshman in college now.  Geez, time flies! I feel like it was not that long ago when I stayed with her family for a month during the summer in Pennsylvania.  Then again, I was ten, which would mean she was four, and her little sister was two, and their adopted sister had not even been born yet.  Time goes by too fast!

Moving along.

One of my new troops accidentally discharged the handgun he was arming up with last month.  He and I had a meeting with the commander on Wednesday to hear what his punishment would be.  He got a Letter of Reprimand (LOR) and an Unfavorable Information File (UIF).  Considering the fact our commander told him the maximum punishment is three months confinement and forfeiture of two-third pay for three months, my troop got off pretty lucky.  He may be able to arm up with his rifle tonight or tomorrow.  That will depend on the flight chief (my supervisor).  He will have to do a remedial class on the handgun before he will be allowed to arm up with the handgun again.  I am just hoping this was an isolated incident and my troop will not be anymore of a problem.
