ASP Guard

I start guard duty tomorrow morning at 0800. I’m really nervous about it, but I know it’ll all be okay. The hours are even worse than I expected. I am not allowed to leave the compound during the two days that I am on duty. After a shift I head from the guard shack to the compound and sleep, eat, relax, etc there. Cell phone reception out there is really bad so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to talk to my family or my friends while I’m there for the two days. After I get off, I have the next two days completely off and I am allowed to leave the compound and come back to the barracks.

Some of the rules that are set forth are pretty bad, but it isn’t anything that I can’t handle.

  • When off duty, I am not allowed to go more than fifty miles from base.
  • There is no drinking, even on the off time, during the tour.
  • While on duty, you are now allowed to leave the compound.
  • There is a possibility I can be called in at any time, but that is very rare.
  • Those are just the main rules. Tomorrow I have classes all day and Sunday I sit in a shift, unarmed for just that one, to learn the ropes. Monday I think I have to start checking in to the battalion as I didn’t do that today.

    This could be real interesting.

      Don’t forget your general orders. Especially number 11.

      Yeah, especially number 11. Number 11 is of the utmost importance, so don’t dare forget it. Yep, number 11… keep that first & foremost in your mind. Remember… number 11.

      Uh… what’s general order number 11?

      As you assume your duty as ASP guard, make certain you always cover yours, okay?

      To walk my post from flank to flank, and take no shit from any rank!
