Well, my eldest daughter Brittany was officially sworn in the Army yesterday and shipped out this morning. She just landed in Dallas/Fortworth changing planes and heading next to Atlanta, Ga. From there she will go by bus to Columbia, SC where she will go through nine weeks basic training at Fort Jackson. After basic she then goes to Fort Lee Virginia for an additional nine weeks of school as a Supply Specialist. Its tough to watch one of your children enter the military at a time like this but I'm so proud of her. Having spent eight years in the Marine Corps I know that this experience will be good for her and will certainly give her an opportunity to mature into a strong independent young women. Its been a real challenge and battle of wills with her the last few years but watching her graduate high school a couple of weeks ago and now go into the military made me realize that she is becoming an adult and is no longer my little girlIts not easy letting them go and stretch their wings.......but what can you do.....just love them.....
