PVT Ben In His Class B Uniform
March 27, 2011
Ben called us Friday night very pumped and excited. He has now officially completed his Basic Training. That means a weekend pass off base and the first time he gets to wear his Class B uniform too! Of course he’s been sending us lots of pictures.
After the movie they headed back to the motel where Ben spent some time in the computer room and texting us. Actually , Ben is really enjoying having his cell phone back for a while. When I rolled out of bed Saturday morning there was a text from him at 6:30am saying “Good morning”. I texted back around 9:00am saying – “Saturday is my day to sleep in”.
It’s Great Hearing From Ben
It’s been great hearing from Ben this weekend and it’s also been great seeing the pictures he’s been sending us. With every text we also saw a very excited bear beside us too. General Sarge wanted to see all the pics!
Later today it’s back to Fort Benning for Ben. While he’s really enjoyed getting off base for a while after spending 1o weeks on base for his intense Basic Training, it’s time to get back to work on his AIT. But, in just four short weeks, we’ll be heading down to Fort Benning to see him graduate! What an exciting time that will be indeed!
Help Us Get To Fort Benning
We’re very excited about Ben’s upcoming graduation, but we’re also asking for help to off-set our costs to Fort Benning. There are now two ways you can help us as we prepare for the trip.
