Letters from Recruit Make Our Day

Posted By: Rob and April Kersch 09-28-10

Our daughter, the oldest girl, is at Parris Island right now. While she has only been gone a few weeks, it has seemed like months. The first two weeks were the hardest for me, it was like I had lost her forever. The first letter with her address and a short note opened the end of that dark tunnel, and now I am excited to see what she writes to us. She writes to her little sister about having one roomy vs. 60, tells her what they eat and do, and gives little sis advice for volleyball and other stuff they have in common. It is so good to know that even though she is becoming a Marine, she is still our girl, and a big sister. She is on training day 14 now, so still a long way to go. I am so proud of her!
