|Doesn't she look so young?|
Mandy has worked very hard at BCT (Basic Combat Training) and is graduating on Friday. Ft. Sill has Family Day on Thursday. Mandy's Platoon earned Honor Platoon and they are the ones performing the demonstrations on Family Day. After the ceremony we get to take her off Base until 9pm. Graduation is 9-10 am on Friday and we get to take her off Base again until 9 pm. She is flying out to Ft. Jackson, SC sometime on Saturday. We fly home on Saturday.
Expect to see lots of pictures when we get home. I think we are going at a fun time. The town is having a walk through town to see all the changing leaves. They are also having a trick-or-treat thing in the center of town Friday evening. There are a few museums we want to visit too. Mandy has a list of things to do also. Her first priority is to go out and eat lol. The poor thing has been "starving" for 10 weeks. Of course the Army feeds them well but they burn through those calories so fast. They get 3 meals a day but most times they only have 5-10 minutes to eat. She wants to sit and eat and talk for as long as she wants. Plus, she wants soda and candy because they have only had 2 sodas and one candy bar in 10 weeks. I guess if you are going to defend our Country you should at least get to drink a soda and eat some candy every once in awhile.
