14 PAX + 0 FNG


TAPs to Detention, Whiskey, and the whole STMES family for the loss of one of their teachers.  Whiskey took us out, blessing those in need and asking for the strength to strive to be better.


Joined the 5 Timers club on 12/5 (no special SNL jacket and key to the lounge).  Nerves still there the night before to not screw it up (and up late writing these BBs).  It’s a different experience leading, but I like it from the perspective you HAVE to perform for your PAX, elevating your level of exertion.  PAX again it was an honor to lead, and to the PAX for a job WELL DONE!  Join the wagon and keep brining something new to the Gloom!  To Snowbird for his VQ at the Marathon tomorrow!


Fill out poll for Ruck training, considering Saturday, Dec. 16th, starting at Hogg 10:30p – ~3 miles to Heights, grab beer and grub, head back ~3 miles to close out 2-3a, no M’s or 2.0s to bother.
