Today, Easter Sunday, was our oldest son’s last day as a civilian. At 6 am Monday morning he leaves for Boot Camp at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. It seems so surreal that my baby, who is not only 22 years old, but married, has gone off and joined the Army. As a family we’re so incredibly proud of him. We know he’s going to do great and that this is just the start of another incredible adventure in his life. It’s going to be a long four months without him but we’re excited for his future in the Army and with his new wife.
We love you Leland, we’re proud of you, pray for your safety, and are thankful for your willingness to serve our country.
