Please say a prayer for his entire Platoon that this goes as well as 52 hour of sleep and food deprevation while covering about 60 miles in marches, obsticale courses can go!!!

OMG... LOLOL... I wish I could have seen your face and heard your voice when you answered and found Rob on the other end.....
awwww. wow... Will you be able to go the graduation ceremony?
I went when my then-husband-now-ex graduated. This was YEEEAAARRS ago, of course... height of Vietnam, in fact....

Gawd, the memories, I will never forget it... After the ceremony we stood on this long 'driveway' waiting for our respective mates/sons/relatives to come out through a building and meet up with us...
I gave this one guy the UGLY eye, smilin' at me, flirtin'-like, coming down the road STRAIGHT at me!! I moved over about two feet to my right, so did he, then he was RIGHT in my face, and OMG!! It was my husband!!! LOLOL... wow, what they did to him!!!

I'm so happy you got to hear from Rob today....

Evidently the days are as hot as we would imagine, but the nights are the real issue...COLD!!! I guess that kinda makes up for the wonderful San Diego weather...
My son also did his recruit training in San Diego, but did his during the winter months. The best part for him was running on the beach. Of course, the most rewarding was completing the Crucible (he brought me a rock as a souvenier) and getting his globe & anchor.

Thank your son for me, too, Paka!

Paka ~ was jis telling Otherhalf that Rob will be at The Crucible next week and he said, "Already?! Dang, didn't realize he'd been there that long!" LOL! To him, I'm sure it seemed to take a zillion years to get there when HE was the one at bootcamp. I still remember it like it was yesterday, tho! All those letters.... they're around here somewhere.
