Our journey begins
Posted By: Robert Leeper 06-14-11
Our son arrived in San Diego to begin his 13 weeks of boot camp, just yesterday (6/13). He had been preparing for this day since last August, when his mother and I agreed to sign for his delayed entry. From that day, he began to prepare his body and his mind for the challenges he is just now undertaking. I have been amazed, blown away and am so very proud of the man he has grown into these last 10 months. I would love to connect with anyone else whose son may be in the same group.
