The time has finally arrived! After hiking through blizzards, crossing frozen fords, scaling a ridiculous amount of objects and enjoying the constant loving, tender care of drill instructors, the day of liberation is within sight.
On March 20, 2009, I will make my official entrance among The Few, The Proud as a 2nd Lieutenant. What a wonderful honor to even have my name listed among the ranks of so many incredible men and women who have sacrificed so deeply for our country and in the defense of freedom around the world.
Should you be in the area and want to celebrate the momentous occasion with me you can find all the pertinent information here. I would love to have you join me. The Commissioning Ceremony will take place at the beautiful National Museum of the Marine Corps, one of the finest museums in the country (and the most enjoyable I've ever been to).
Please note that I am still confined to base and will be without communication prior to graduation, so I will not be available to answer any questions you may have. Just show up! I would love the surprise.
