Yep, I was there during that period of time. Gallanis wasn't on my crew, but he was in my light armored section. As I remember, you guys played a lot of Dungeons and Dragons. Amazed me years later when my sons played the computerized versions of the same game. Seems to me that somebody told be that Gallanis had later become an officer or had gone to OCS or something of that nature. As I remember, SGT Turner was Gallanis' tank commander. They didn't get along at all.
As crazy as hurricane season is here, the ICS brings a sense of organization to it that is very familiar & comforting- like its been done before & somebody has actually thought it through. People fall apart down here, even old timers, when the only thing that you can really do is move, and they refuse to.
This past week was just a taste of things to come- low 90s & metric shitload of mosquitoes. It seems like I've been going to college my entire adult life. I actually took my 1st course in Amberg via U. of MD in1979!! 30 years is a long, long time to grind on text books. Does IL. work off the federal ICS. Its got a military task organization feel to it. Works well for big fires & hurricane response. I always get stuck being the OPS Chief. Damned S-3!
Still grinding away. Not really looking forward to the summer though- bugs, humidity, and hurricanes. This place is not fit for man nor beast. However, I am going to Mexico for summer school. A much needed "college experience". You?
