August 24th, 2552 – Military Cross Training – Take two.
Pilot/Mechanic/Jump-Gate Navigator/Grunt in training Kat “S-Kat” James Reporting
I was once again cleared for training – Which I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t taken that extra week, but a week of light duty in the fleet will never compare to a week of doing nothing on a tropical paradise. We had a new drill instructor and it seems several of the Einherjar from the Valkyrie’s View decided they needed a refresher course.
I know they’re watching out for me – but when you have big brothers watching out for you, people tend to find ways around them, or through them.
Fortunately, I’m not a complete pushover and I can give as good as I get— and I’m really good at running away. Today was mostly about tactics and ground warfare but the live-fire exercise and being singled out has given me the inspiration I need to practice side-stepping things.
I still can’t go far, but I can do it more often and I am better at planning where I end up— although random still seems the best way to throw people off. Let’s face it, its hard to predict someone’s moves if they aren’t planning things out.
