Has anyone heard who won the initial drill 7/25/11?

Posted By: Tammy Danner 07-27-11

 
Calendar looks like our recruits had a busy week this week. Initial drill, initial written test, rappel tower and gas chamber & indidvidual pictures! I usually have to remind my son to smile in his pictures but told him I wouldn't ask him to smile for this one.
Prayers to all of our sons and daughters.

My son left for boot camp on July 11th. It has been the hardest 3 weeks without him. First letters broke my heart because he couldnt understand why he hadn't received any mail. Today received letter and he had gotten a letter from me and I could tell he was so happy. I am praying for all our sons and daughters.

Hello, I'm a recruit mom of 3rd RCT Bn, Co K, Plt 3077. My son left for Parris Island on June 27th.. There's pictures posted on facebook for different Co's. Search facebook for MCRD PARRIS ISLAND, click on photos, there are many different photo albums to look through. TD-13 is pictures of Kilo Co, but I didn't see my son in any of those pictures. I will keep looking maybe I will see him in training before he graduates. I can't wait until graduation, I hope everything is going well for my son I say the recruit's prayer everyday in hopes it gives him just a little extra strength, and courage to make it thru each day. I'm sure the pictures will look great, although, I haven't seen a Marine picture with a smile. They are always with a very serious look on their faces! And, I can't wait to see the recruit's yearbook!
