Health and Welfare inspection.

That’s what they call it. It’s really a fancy way of saying room inspection. That’s right, we have no privacy rights here. It doesn’t bother me too much. I have nothing to hide. It’s just one of the things that goes along with being in the Army. Nothing is kept private.

Supposedly it was done while I was on leave. I wasn’t present when they went through my room and they still went through my stuff. They’re mostly looking for things like alcohol, pornography, unauthorized weapons and ammunition. The room inspection was surprised and unannounced like it usually is. They usually do the same things with a drug test too. They never give us advance notice.

One of the units on the next pad was having a yard sale today. I guess they’re getting ready to leave home pretty soon. I’m really not interested in buying anything. My roommate has a fridge and a TV, which I share. I was in the market for some drawers and a chair but I bought them at the PX the other day. I’d like to buy some movies but I’m sure there are none for sale. Most of the guys that are leaving sell things like TVs, microwaves, refrigerators, mobile phones, and satellite dishes. It’s basically the stuff that they can’t take home with them. My roommate is looking for a satellite dish right now. I wouldn’t mind having one myself. I’m going to help him find one.
