Once again a lull in between posts, this time because of me making a powerpoint presentation for a proposal(hows that for illiteration?) to use facebook.com as an official, stablished manner of doing business for the Arkanasas Federation of College Republicans, of which just elected me as state operations director. While I can't really attend meetings till probably late next fall, I can still email reports fairly well, and already I've proven more effective than the last person, but that didn't take much.
On Army matters, we've pretty much have finished dealing with a supply officer who was giving us a hard time with getting a new Advanced Combat Helmet(ACH) to a soldier in our unit that was narrowly escaped death with he had been shot by a sniper in the head from behind during a mission while I was still on leave. The round just scraped along the side of the guy's head instead of penetrating it, and he's still in our unit to this day. He was given an old "kevlar" helmet, essentially 1980s technology, and we've been having trouble with the supply officer to understand that a guy who just got shot in the head might not want something that is obsolete.
Nevermind that when I came up to him recently, he had said we didn't given him any paperwork, which was impossible, because for us to even start the whole process, he'd already have
to have the paperwork. Of course, it should be hard for him to know, as he never even bothered to get out of his seat to even check his records. This guy is responsible for issuing replacement equipment to thousands
of people, and this guy wont even get up to double check something we know
he should have?

Apparently, sustainable development includes having an inflation rate so high you might as well make your own Zimbabwe cash on your HP Deskjet Printer just to keep from loosing your personal worth.
