Mother of Female Marine
Posted By: Lennette Parker 11-27-11
My daughter left for PI on Nov 7. Her first letter was heartbreaking as she was so home sick. The last few have been much better. She told me she hurt her knee and is on crutches. From the first letter I would have thought she would be ok with giving it up and coming home but the past few letters are breaking my heart again. She wants so much to finish and she is so worried she is going to get dropped. Such an emotional roller coaster! She has not mentioned having to push out her graduation date yet. Praying her knee will heal quick & she can finish strong!
