I was told that this is a good place for military support as well as the Community Board. So I wanted to share that my 18 year old brother left today for Parris Island. It was sad to see him go but I am so darn proud of him and I hope he does well. I think the last few days he was having doubts on whether he will do well enough but I hope he stays positive and kicks some Marine booty. He called (my mother) about an hour ago and did the short, this is recruit so and so and I am here - then the phone went dead. He says he is not going to write but I hope he changes his mind. Thanks for letting me babble.
