The Work Begins

Day 5
First, sorry for missing a day. I will try to keep that to a minimum. Part of the problem is the very slow network speeds that we have during the day. I need to start writing my blog entries off line and up loading them.

Stood my first watch out here today. The Det we’re relieving still does all the work. We, the oncoming Det, watch, ask questions, and learn the processes and patterns that the departing Det has established. Once we’ve taken over and sent these guys home, we’ll look for ways to improve on what’s been built over the past 14 months.

The watch was quite a bit more relaxed than those we were standing in San Diego. I suspect in part because we have a real mission to carry out. At any rate, no one was stressing out about anything. Some opportunities to learn, a few opportunities to teach. All in all, a good watch. I look forward to standing watch with this off-going group.

I’m tired and sleepy, it’s late. I’m going to bed.

  1. I have to say that I ran across your site while doing a search on Camp Spearhead. My boyfriend was part of the crew that got delayed a couple days due to the airplane ‘error’ in Coronado.
    I am finding it fun and interesting in hearing what you have to say due to the fact that I am learning about the area and I also have not had the opportunity to have many emails with my boyfriend, of which I hope more will come.
    I truly hope you do not mind me visiting your website!!
    By the way, I just had a brother and a cousin return from a year long duty in Iraq, and I still continue to pray for those of you who are still over there.
    God Bless!
