There's Strong, then there's Army Strong... and then there's Blake
Guess what...I'm joining the Army! With all this talk about a baby I'll bet you all never saw that one coming. On Feb 4, 2009 I will be entering Basic Combat Training (BCT) also known as boot camp at Fort Jackson South Carolina. BCT will last 9 weeks and 4 days. On April 27, 2009 I will be entering Officers Candidate School (OCS) at Fort Bennington Georgia. OCS will last 12 weeks. Upon completion of OCS I will be the lowest ranking officer, a second lieutenant. Because I'm going to be going in as an officer opposed to a regular enlisted soldier I don't get the luxury of picking my profession. Once I complete OCS I will begin my commission with a 3 year commitment to active duty followed by 5 years as a reservist. Go Army!
