Swing Shift, 452 SFS
HOMETOWN: Hemet, Ca.
0700â€‚Daughter is up… Sleeping until noon is not going to happen!
1000â€‚Time to get ready for work. Hope Iâ€™m posted somewhere with a decent view.
1200â€‚Should to be out the door and headed to work, but knowing me, I probably forgot something.
1215â€‚Yep, just as I figured… Forgot to pack lunch. Where are my truck keys!?!
1220â€‚Keys were in my pocket the entire time. Finally headed to work. Hope I get there on time.
1259â€‚Walking into the squadron with a minute to spare, which is not good because in Security Forces, if you are on time, you are late!
1315â€‚Armed up with my weapons and standing at the guard-mount; itâ€™s the area just past the gate with the protective barricade. No one trying to bust through the gate with a full on assault. Just routine cop stuff.
1345â€‚Feeling like I need to hydrate, so I head back to the command center for a quick drink. The senior master sgt. loves the Dew; I think will â€œborrowâ€ one of the Dews from his snack bar and then run back to post. BTW sorry Senior!
1400â€‚Out patrolling the mean streets of March ARB, no violators so far. Watch out with your speeding, because all eyes are on you!
1630â€‚The whole base is heading home for the day!! Thatâ€™s ok, I am still here to protect and serve!
1800â€‚Still protecting and serving; living the dream!
1900â€‚TDY C-17 just landed. Time to rope it off on the flight line, even though it leaves tomorrowâ€¦ we have to do, what we have to do!
1945â€‚Hmmmâ€¦ I have some extra rope and cones. Maybe I should go rope off the on-duty desk sergeantâ€™s car!… Not a chance… still on duty.
2000â€‚I see SFS guys with fresh faces walking through the door; it must be the midshift crew!!! That means I am almost off!!!
2145â€‚Jokeâ€™s on me! This always happensâ€¦ just when I am ready to go home, I remember itâ€™s Monday, which means physical training after work; you have to love the two mile runs. Hoooah!!
