We heard some great stories today too. I was sooo happy to get that phone call since I missed the last one. A couple funny things...
While on a march a car drove by playing music. She thanked g_d for the moment of music she was able to hear. Then a few days ago she saw a computer and just started daydreaming about e-mail. She's also very proud that one of the guys in her platoon (?) company (?) was the top new cadet so far. Naturally he's prior enlisted and has spent time in Iraq.
I'm thrilled that marines4me was able to log on and give us an update. And shogun, your daughter sounds like she'd doing great. Although she was very fit and had trained hard, unfortunately mine is on profile right now for shin splints. The hills beat her up worst than the cadre did. So all of you rising seniors, please heed marines4me's words.
