Congrats 181st JAOBC! | Army Life

Last Wednesday, my babe and about 111 other JAG (Judge Advocate General) Officers graduated from the Charlottesville phase of their training.  This was the part of training where they learned about military law, kind of like law school-round 2…bless their hearts!  After I graduated from undergrad, I said enough is enough!  Kudos to you all!

Anyways, during the past 12 weeks, spouses were able to visit freely…so I was lucky enough to meet some wonderful couples!  I was also lucky enough to meet and shake the hands of the United States’ incredible leaders.  I’ll be honest…I don’t follow politics…and I really don’t know anything about what’s going on over in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I really think that I should be more informed, but I feel like the media only delivers “bad” (as in “unfortunate”) news.  And I’m not one to surround myself with negativity.

However, over the past month or so, I’ve been learning more about the situation over there in the Middle East.  I’m not going to say much about the details of the things I’ve learned, b/c I feel like Big Brother might take away my blog =( …and we wouldn’t want that to happen.  (I sound crazy, I know.)  But! I will say this, we are making big progress!  I couldn’t believe what I had learned!  I just reeeeeallly wish the media would report more of the good things.  I feel like all the negativity gives our country such poor morale b/c we’re left completely ignorant of the good things that are happening over there.  But, as in all things in life, there are multiple sides to every story…and I only heard one side of it…so I am in no way proclaiming myself to be “all-knowing” or an expert in any way at all.  We’re all exposed to different resources, stories and opinions and this is just my reaction to what I was exposed to.

Here are a few photos from the graduation.  Congratulations again to the 181st JAOBC!
