Treats and delicacies...

Training continues in Bryan/College Station, Texas and we are covering as many areas as possible. Training has been fun and educational because we always have soldiers in the unit that keep things light, but focused.

We have been keeping up with our public affairs guidance and doctrine which maintains our energies towards the mission. Mainly, we are trying to prepare for when we hit ground in Iraq, so that we are ready to cover the stories.

Our physical training continues as well. We are using the Bryan High School track to workout and keep our bodies fit. We do plenty of muscle failure and cardio activities.

But, the Golden Corral has been a major obstacle to keeping the weight down. The Golden Corral Buffet & Grill (GCBG) is our dining facility for lunch and dinner. The 'Corral', as many in the unit put it, is a cornucopia of tastes that leads to a cornucopia of smells later on.

Getting back to the room at the www.eztravelinn.com is always a big relief. Good times are had at the EZ where you can sit back, relax, and watch cable tv or just kick it with a battle buddy and listen to music. The EZ has lived up to its reputation by making our lives much easier. They have even given us gift baskets that include shaving kits, toothpaste, deodorants and peanuts.

SPC Alperin, I love your enthusiasm. Your are the veritable American Soldier, seeing light where there is none, finding positive experiences during difficult times. Thanks for all you add to the 211th.

Have you bought stock in the EZ?

You know what I noticed? I have never had to wait for 'Hot Water' at the EZ. I just turn the know and it is there within seconds. That is something to be grateful for...
