Last week I took the kids up to Missouri with my Dad. We went to see James graduate from Basic training. It was a hard trip, 3 kids in a hotel room isn't my favorite thing but I am really glad we went. The graduation ceremony gives you a small glimpse into what these guys go through and what it takes to not only complete this program but live this life and it's no small sacrifice. We were able to spend two days hanging out with James and then they shipped him of to AIT (advanced individual training) where he will receive training on becoming a medic. We are really excited and proud of him. We can't wait to see what the future holds.
