my stepson left on 3/11/13. it was one of the hardest things to do saying bye to him as he left for bootcamp. even though it is hard not being able to pick up a phone and call him, we are extremely proud of him. he used to say he wanted to join the military as a young child. when it finally came for him to tell us he joined the marines,it was hard to hear but very joyful at the same time. we were able to go the meps with him and other famlily members. we are looking forward to seeing him graduate on June 7th.
