Keep sick call slips, profiles, get injuries documented, all that. Or, be "hard" and whatnot, and enjoy your aches and pains and inability to do the things you used to, and have nothing to show for it.
Fuck that Army mentality, "sick call ranger" bullshit. And for fuck's sake, if you're seeing headshrinkers thanks to your adventures with this army, you know where I'm going with this. It isn't a moral judgment, it's common sense.90 days out you'll be able to go to an ETS briefing.

My father, Alfred Leonard James Parris, was in the Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) and married my mother, Georgette Eugenie Youssief, who, according to her birth certificate, was Palestinian, although she, too, was born in Alexandria, Egypt.

I have five sisters, including: Valerie, born near Cairo, Egypt (1938); Leonora, born in Palestine (1940); and Christine, born in Alexandria, Egypt (1947); the last two were born in the UK. After docking in Liverpool, we stayed in a hostel on Lime Street Station (in transit).

When questioned, should I become the object of a re-enlistment interview, I am bound to give only my name, rank, service number, date of birth and date I am due to be discharged. I will never forget that I am an American short-timer, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which have made carefree, happy civilians out of thousands of short-timers before me. I'm somewhere in the whole process, so there are things I still haven't learned the hard way.
There's much more to it, like having your shit sent back home to mom and dad, and let them worry about where to store it for two months while you dick off, not to mention cleaning and turning in your gear, and jumping through a billion hoops and God help you if you don't have the necessary paperwork or else you gotta come back later, son. And never, EVER forget the Short-Timers Code of Conduct.
