Now that all of my training is practically finished, I am on the home stretch towards graduation. As of today, I have eleven days and a wake up until graduation day, June 6th. (Note from Lauren: I’m a little late for posting this. He’s coming home today!!) To prepare for graduation over the next eleven days I have to clean all of my gear I need to turn in, clean the barracks, clean my weapons, have a bunk/bay inspection from the first sergeant and commander, put my pins on my ASU’s (dress blues), get a few briefs and go to a few meetings, and also practice for graduation.
I never thought I would get to this point. It seemed as I would never get to leave this place. I’ve gotten so used to Fort Leonard Wood, I forget what home is like. I haven’t seen anyone at all from back at home. Some people have FaceTime or another video chat on their phone. It is going to be beyond amazing to see my family again. Everyone around here, myself included, is really excited to graduate.
This will be my last blog posting while here in Missouri. The one after this I’ll be able to type up myself on my own computer at home. I hope I still remember how to type! I’m not able to receive any more mail since there is just a little over a week left.
This was fun while it lasted. I would like to thank my sister, Lauren, for typing up these blogs for me and posting them on this blog while I’ve been away. I don’t even know how many blogs I’ve written this whole journey. I hope you have enjoyed reading along to all of my experiences, and I’m glad to have your support.
Signing out for the last time here in Missouri,
