Alex found out today what his job assignment is with the Army. He will be an Ordnance Officer. He is to report for Basic Officer Training on April 6, 2008 (not sure where yet) and then to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland for 18 weeks of Ordnance Training on May 20-something.
"The purpose of the Ordnance Corps is to support the development, production, acquisition and sustainment of weapons systems and munitions, and to provide Explosive Ordnance Disposal, during peace and war, to provide superior combat power to current and future forces of the United States Army.”
He doesn't know yet what unit he'll be attached to after he finishes his training ~ he should find that out in a couple of weeks.
Please keep him, and all our troops, in your prayers.
