Quote from Franemtnurse
If she's a determined, and a strong willed girl, she'll make it through basic training. But I'm not so sure about the women in combat thing. I know you would worry if that was the case, and rightfully so. Some kids join the armed forces to get away from home. It is only after they see what the 6 weeks of basic training entails, that makes some get second thoughts. By then it's too late.
tiff goes to pt (physical training) every week.
her sargeant says she does better than half the guys.
the other noc, she came home wet and covered in mud.
her brother even went w/her one week.
he was hurting for days after, and wouldn't return.
but tiff is on a natural high.
i've done everything i can, to warn her of the stressors she'll encounter.
it just seems to challenge her more.
she's leaving the end of may, after she completes 1 more semester in college.
since she dropped out of school and got her ged, they want her to acquire 15 credits in college, which she will earn after this coming semester.
i am now awaiting the "proud parent of a marine" to put on my bumper. :stone
