I'm not sure what letter comes before A, but that is where I am at, and Z is the Kepi Blanc. Living in a homeless shelter, working two jobs (not complaining). Started the legionare training that was posted on another thread. I joined the forum to become more acquainted, got a lot of good feedback and tough love. Offended a veteran, which I am sorry about. This is a whole new world to me. The cigs got to go and soon, or my window is going to close. I believe this can be achieved in my life. Hard work, discipline, commitment, sacrifice, a little bit of good fortune. I'd like to learn more about the different regiments within the Legion and the ranking system. I'd like to learn the slow March and the legion songs as well. Today I left the shelter at 530, did 30 pull-ups 50 pushups ran 30 sprints, swam 20 laps 30 sit-ups 20 dips and hiked for an hour and a half with my backpack. I need to start saving my money, and absolutely have to quit smoking. I swam underwater about half a lap, which is going to need to be 2 laps to make it. Going to do another 50 pushups tonight after work. Tommorrow run for an hour and a half. 30 pull-ups 50 pushups. 20 dips, and 30 sit-ups. Saturday I hike from 6 till 2 with 50 pounds until I have to leave for work. Told my one boss about my desire, totally supportive. Job waiting for me if it doesn't work out. Mentioned to my second boss about going to Europe next year. Waiting a little bit to say why, but making a plan just in case I don't make it. Need to save 10,000 in the next 9 months. Called some freighter ships to see if I can travel to le Havre by sea. That is where I am at, whichever letter comes before A, and the Kepi Blanc is the letter after Z.
