Our youngest daughter graduated from AIT at Ft. Sam 3 weeks ago and has been home on recruiter duty since. She has been away from home since the end of May when she enlisted and we have missed her badly.

She ships for S. Korea on 1 January to serve on a FST for the next year.

We would have preferred Colorado Springs...

This picture is from her MOUT FTX at Camp Bullis. Note the old school M16 musket.

The average size of a 68W company is around 150 soldier medics. Her's started at around 300 and finished at 225. She said that the Army will expand the 68W class to close to 1000 in the spring. It is ominous that the Army thinks that they need that many more Combat Medics.

Pray for peace.

You've raised some mighty fine younguns, Byron. You and your wife deserve to be proud, and at peace. Here's to a peaceful nation and world.

I have heard rumblings of preparation.

in the Air Force as a surgical Tech, she is at Ft sam as well.
I was an instructor for 2 years at Bullis when the Air Force taught Air Base Ground Defense courses there. I wasn't very partial to Camp Bullis. LOL
My family thanks her for her service!

Ah yes, Camp Bullis.

You have to admit though, the swimming pool at Bullis was pretty cool. Hand dug out of solid rock by German POW's.

My youngest son just came home from there...
