Army Life

August 26, 2013 | Second Lieutenant Francesca Welsh

Here I am, a brand new 2LT. 

I have 4 days less than a full month from commissioning to finding out what my BOLC dates are, which unit I will be in, or the location of my first duty station.

Anticipation is surely growing, with good reason. As of now, I am just keeping in top physical shape and mental readiness for a quick move (*or an extended stay).

There are a handful of things that make both options viable for me. I look forward to what 5 September holds for me.


All the luck in the world to the rest of the 2013 2LT Class that is in my same accessions grouping!

    Thank you Ricky! I am quite excited. Good luck at basic, I hear great things about Ft. Benning and I wish you the very best in future. Post (if you can) as your training progresses; I'm sure many would love to hear of it!
