New Guy

Just bought a 2005 Tacoma this past Tuesday for a birthday present to myself. So far I would have to say it has been the best decision EVER! I am in LOVE!
Okay, here is the down low on Mary Sue (that's what I have decided to call her):
6spd
access cab
33" BFGs
and some cool looking rims

I am new to the Toyota world. I have always been a Chevy boy but it is something about the taco that just drew me in. And plus, a taco was a lot cheaper to afford than a duramax.

I am stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA. If any of you are near, lets get up sometime. I am really interested in learning more about the capabilities of my truck, if you know what I mean.

Welcome to TW from lovely Kuwait!

I used to be with the 56th SBCT. What's your MOS? I wouldn't mind going to Fort Lewis for my next assignment, but I would prefer heading back to the east coast.

No, I'm at AJ. It's not too bad, but I'd rather be at home. What part of Delaware? I'm originally from Baltimore, but moved to Pennsylvania many years ago. Once I went Regular Army, I was assigned to Fort Sill. Sill isn't too bad, but it's about time to move on.

I was always tasked out to handle our commo equipment even though I'm not a commo guy. I'm thinking about changing to Signal Corps, but I'm waiting to hear back from ARCOM.

I lived in Camden/Dover through high school then left for basic directly after.
Signal Corps is not bad, all depends on the unit you are in. Line units are the best, mainly for experience and hooah training. If I could have done it all over again, I would have been combat arms instead of support.
How much longer are you in Kuwait for?

Damn Baum, don't you sleep.

I will be here for about another 5-6 months. I started off in the PA Army National Guard as an infantryman, but moved over to the Regular Army after ROTC. After living the life in a support unit, I'm debating going to combat arms. I just don't think that my body could take it. I'm currently in Ordnance, but I would prefer MI or Signal.

I am on CQ. Gotta love it! ha. I worked with some MI guys when I was in Panjawaii, pretty cool dudes. But yeah, support is boring. Even though it serves as a good trade to learn, I cannot handle the quality of Soldiers and lack of discipline in support compared those combat arms Soldiers. I am sure you can agree with this being prior infantry.

It drives me nuts seeing the products that are coming out of BCT and AIT in todays Army. Lack of discipline is a definite. Soldiers are treating NCOs like crap and no one is doing anything about it. If you try to do anything, the Soldier cries to the chaplain. They don't realize how good they have it.

I completely agree with you brother! And as a NCO you cannot actually discipline a Soldier without having consequences yourself (I am talking about smoking the shit out of them). My leaders want EVERYTHING taken care of on a 4856, which is good for a paperwork trail but Soldiers seem to learn nothing from it.

They either don't learn or the paperwork gets lost, so the NCOs do all the work with no desired results.
