One soldier's journey through life, one photo at a time.

Everyone enjoys a nice sit on the pot.
But, have you ever wondered what it’s like to assemble the porcelain throne while you’re seated on it? Well, wonder no more.
These skilled craftsmen were hard at work today putting these lovely toilets together. I commend them for their skill and precision in such a dimly-lit environment.

Military ball tonight!
I love it when they put dry ice in the grog!

While visiting one of the construction sites today, I saw one our contractors with his puppy.
It’s an Akita!
Beautiful animal. I love dogs.

Judging from all the status updates I’m seeing on the social network, Utah has received some snowfall. How lovely.
Here are some old photos I snapped about four or five years ago, back when I was an undergraduate at BYU. Campus appears to be deserted, so I most likely took these on a Sunday afternoon…

And this is what a platoon leader’s office looks like. For a year, I worked out of this cramped, miserable space. Ugh.
It’s been well over a year since I passed the baton over to my successor. I saw that same lieutenant again today when I swung by the battalion headquarters to purchase tickets to the military ball. He’s also going to succeed me in my current duties over at Holloman AFB, but that won’t be for another month.
I’ll start 2014 back at 2E. Exciting.

salt lake city
As an ROTC cadet, I spent many a weekend on field training exercises at Camp Williams. All I remember is the long, cold nights of wandering through the frigid plains, searching for land navigation points. Sitting around a burn barrel and shooting the breeze with my friends.
Now we’re all graduated and scattered throughout the world.

Monkey bread. That’s what my co-worker called this entry to our office potluck. Despite its peculiar name, the dish was a hit with the Corps of Engineers branch staff.
It was sweet and yummy.

Happy Black Friday!
When I saw this box in our living room, I realized where my roommate had been this morning. I hope he can find a spot for it!

I was just going to sit around my house and do nothing today, but I got a surprise text from a young lady in my ward inviting me over to her house for Thanksgiving dinner. Along with her parents, five of her seven siblings were in attendance. They’re a rad family. Also present were a few other friends. We hung out and shot the breeze for quite a while.
Great way to spend Thanksgiving!

Mysterious flipped car on the lonely road between Fort Bliss and White Sands.
New Mexicans are awful when it comes to driving in the snow. I saw several wrecked cars on the side of the road that day.
I called the White Sands police and they were already tracking. They told me the car flipped over yesterday. I hope the occupants made it out safely.
