This is my first post in a good while and it will probably be a while before the next one. I am in training right now and its almost impossible to get the time to blog. I will post as often as I am able and after a few months I'll be a regular again.
Someone wanted to know how or why I made the change from the seminary to the Army. I had actually joined the Army before I went to the seminary. I commissioned in May and went to the sem in August. I went to the sem with a co-sponsorship between the Archdiocese for the Military Services and Boise. I was a soldier the whole time I was there. This created some internal conflict however, since I always seemed to be sorting out with myself whether I was a soldier who happened to be in the seminary or a seminarian who happened to be in the Army.
Of course there were many, many, many other reasons why things didn't work out (for instance, my doubts about whether I could be celibate), but when after a year I left I was still obliged to four years of active duty and so I went to the Army. Now I have a couple Army schools to do for the next few months.
