Thread: new LCpl!

    new LCpl!

    I am so happy and wanted to share with people that actually understand.

    My oldest is graduating tomorrow from Engineering at Ft Leonard Wood, as a LCpl! Yeah! He was top of his class, among all the branches, the entire MOS and worked so very hard. All first class PFT's and never missed a single day. He was surprised that even when they went to Uniques, he stayed on the top. I am so excited for him, he wasn't sure all this time if it would happen, or if they were just telling him that to keep him on the top! He will fly through Phoenix tomorrow, on his way to Yuma, so I hope I can see him for a few minutes.

    My other son, is happy at AP Hill, at least now that the rain has stopped. He is really cold though. He and a really nice Corporal are out at Retrans, and enjoying the Corporal's laptop and a couple of movies. He sounds good.

    Just wanted to share my news! Thanks everyone for your support and help. The Marines on here are amazing!

    Congrats to you and especially your son. It is hard to get that top spot sometimes but he did it.

    COngratulations to you and your boys - Remember, you may look ordinary, BUT you raised Marines!

    AP Hill is not that far from me - if he is going to be there a while, have him PM me - we'll fix up a home cooked meal or two.

    Thanks everyone! I just can't stop smiling today :o) I know he worked really hard, I am so glad it paid off for him. I know he will miss his friends, they are great Marines, but he is looking forward to meeting new ones in Yuma. All of you can understand my excitement, whereas the civilians I know, couldn't really be bothered. I am glad you all are here!

    Marinemom, Eric says thanks, he wishes he could leave the hill to have something other than MRE's, but he isn't allowed. You are really sweet to offer that though.

    Fingers crossed they let me see him at the airport tonight.

    I have great news to report....The airport let me meet his plane and stay with him until his connection left. Yeah! I was so happy I sent the airline a message when I got home with the names of the people that helped me. It was so wonderful to see him! He had all his papers from his graduation with him, so he was able to strut his stuff a little for his Mom. :o) I am so proud of both of my son's, and I appreciate the support on here.

    I can't believe I missed this thread.....

    Congratulations, MarineMama, to your knew LCpl. That's it for the freebies, now he's gotta earn 'em. And, judging by your report, that should not be a problem.

    Ooh-Rah!
