Well, she made it!
My Sarah has arrived safely at Parris Island, has been assigned to her training platoon and I’m assuming she’s hard at work becoming a United States Marine!
Today I received a typed form letter, explaining that she has, indeed, arrived safely, will be graduating tentatively on 10 January 2014, and that she will be receiving her mail daily, except for Sundays and holidays. It also detailed a list of stuff she’s not allowed to receive in the mail – you know – the usual stuff like food, pr0n, etc.
I plan on writing her every day, so she receives a note of encouragement daily.
If anyone wants to continue leaving notes of encouragement here, please feel free. I will be printing all of them out and forwarding them to her!
