Training Day Zero

My fellow FP and I took 3 flights to arrive at Fort Riley late last night. For the first flight we were amazingly assigned to First Class. I attribute this to this to the fact that there were no other seats available on the plane by the time that our arrangments were made. It was nice. The last government flight I rode in first class was in 1990. The second two flights were in a small puddle-jumper prop plane with 45 mph cross winds during take off and landing. Not for the faint of heart.
Now we are inprocessing at Fort Riley. It looks like the remainder of our team is already here. We are currently in barracks, but will move to the FOB by the end of the week to start our training cycle, which may take about 60 days.
Still no definitive word on my assignment place in country after training.
