Just because your a 2LT, doesn't mean you are new to the military. There are alot of soldiers who were in for several years, became NCO's, THEN did the "Green to Gold", and became officers.<quoted text>
confused or a liar. being a 2nd LT means more then likely he went to an officer training course after college which is your first duty station lasting 6 months to a year and he did that as a 2nd Lt meaning 01, then he would be assigned a duty station for 36 months or 24 in some cases and in extreme and not to often cases 18 months. a 2nd Lt is usually in that rank from one year to two years and then promoted to 1LT. with that said, there is not way you brother n law is a 2nd LT and lived in Germany a 2 or 3 yr tour, fort bliss another 2 or 3 years then hawaii another 2 or 3 yr tour and then colorado another 2 or 3 yrs. so lets add that one year of officer training plus four pcs moves at 3 years each that equal what, 13 yrs he should be a major by now. as for leesville, it is not a bad place but there is nothing to do here. this location was picked because of the lack of people, and large area of open land to train. if you like sitting in doors watching tv then its a great place to live.
Also, I recently PCS'd to polk. I never asked to come here, but there was a need, apparently, and I had to. I really wish I could have just been like, "No thanks." But it doesn't work that way.
My family hates it here. Only been here 2 months, and I've already been harassed by the local law enforcement, who apparently knew nothing about USA-NATO license plates issued by USAREUR. Extremely rude officer, who didn't hesitate with using ALOT of foul language in front of my wife and 3 kids.
People like that, is what gives Leesville, such a great repertoire.
And of course, all the little inconveniences of living in this area, which is made so convenient. And seriously, where does all the funding for public works projects really go? If I were a permanent resident of the area, I would try to find out. That's your tax dollars going into the wallets of these so called public servants.
