So we cleaned up the barracks today, about as good as they've ever been cleaned from what I can tell. One thing remains consistent here at Fort Dix--the cold. It doesn't really let up. The ground is hard and icy all the time. But we may wish for cold weather again once we are in the desert in Iraq. We are feeling good after completing our mobilization training. It feels like we have accomplished so much already, before the mission has even started. Pictured at right, we are on a range at Fort Dix rehearsing to defend a base attack. Days out on the range are usually fun days, and this day was no exception.
