Today was the first day that we were actually going to contribute.  After a breakfast that needed some hot sauce, everybody was split up to do various jobs in various warehouses.

Andy, another volunteer (for privacy reasons, I'm not using anybody in the group's real name and all of the pictures have our faces fuzzed out), and I got put into a warehouse where we were counting how many items were on a shelf and labeling the shelf with that number.  The soldier girl working with us showed us how to do it and did a few shelves with us.  Then, she went on her smoking break and told us to chill.  After about 10 minutes, we got back to work, but her break lasted the rest of the morning.  

After lunch, we were put with a bunch of the other volunteers in a warehouse moving things from one set of shelves to another.  We were told that we did 2 months of work in 1 afternoon, which I would have found difficult to believe if I hadn't seen the girl sitting around all morning.

After dinner, we had an evening activity that the Madrichot put together for us.  They taught us about the army- which berets meant which jobs, that the opportunities were, what was open to women, and more.  They explained that our base was a logistics base, so most of the work will be related to getting equipment ready for other bases to use. 

Again we chilled after the evening activity, but made sure to get to bed at a reasonable time so that we could get up refreshed for work the next day.
