The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

We usually find out our first posting around Feb or so. Hopefully I get an early BOLC II date...
They made him a second lieutenant
They gave him his two bars of gold
They made him a forward observer

Pay attention to your grades, and always remember what the Corps of Cadets academic advisor told us at A&M, "Anything over a 2.0 is wasted effort . . . "
