Third time's the charm
Well, I am finally all good to go to boot on Monday. I went to MEPS today after staying in the hotel last night and I made weight and passed the inspect (which was wicked easy, might I add LOL), so I am actually going this time! I was supposed to go on 13 November, but a family member died a few days prior which had me extremely upset and stressed, so the Gunny at my RSS changed my ship date; then on 03 December I was told I was going to ship in two days! I was pretty sick them though, and they did not approve me to ship. So, my date was for 17 December, and well, I finally made it. I'm pretty excited and pretty nervous all at the same time, and I have been wanting this for years and years, so I am hoping that will keep me going despite the self-doubt I may have. Thank you everyone SO much for helping me out, being so supportive, giving and providing great information...everything. I know if I didn't make it here I would not be as confident as I am now, although I am not 100% confident either - I think everyone has those self-doubts when going into something like this. I am getting picked up to go to MEPS around 0300, and hopefully I will be coming back the weekend of 14 March with that EGA!

If time permits and I doubt that it will try and take it one thing at a time at Parris Island. Things will start to go faster and faster and before you know it you will have that EGA.
When you return from Parris Island don't forget to update your profile so we can call you a Marine here on the forum

Good Luck Holly! I know you've been waiting to leave for awhile now. And hopefully with things going to plan we'll both be back here on that same time in March with our EGA's.

Hey, I just checked the weather down in Beaufort, SC down there, and it's supposed to be around 60 the first full day that I am there. That's a helluva lot better than the 19 degrees (and awaiting snow) it is here in Jersey LOL.

Good luck! At least you're going in the winter, I swear those of us hailing from the Yankee states would melt in the summer. Hope to see you back with that Eagle, Globe and Anchor!
