Dylan’s Marine Corps Bootcamp Graduation

20151024 dylan bootcampWe had a pretty awesome last couple days at Parris Island, South Carolina. 

We had a whole group of the family (12 of us) that went down for Dylan’s Marine Corps bootcamp graduation which took place on October 23. The family day and graduation festivities are done very well and well worth the trek down, even if we were in the state around 48 hours! Made for a grueling road trip, down and back.

It’s been a long 12 weeks that I’m sure he’s glad is over. Just thinking about his last 3 months brought up lots of memories from my Navy bootcamp, which was nowhere near as physically demanding. An accomplishment that can never be taken away from him.

A huge congratulations to him for attaining the “High Shooter” award in his company which included around 489 recruits from 6 platoons. Not sure if he realizes what an accomplishment that is. Great work. I think Nate is trying to take credit for that from all the years of airsoft battles on the compound.

He’s home on leave for a bit, then off to infantry training at Camp Lejeune, and ultimately off to see the world!

Again, congratulations and God speed!
