Just a quick update... see that handsome Marine surrounded by a beaming family? That's my little brother and us (well, not me because I was taking the picture) on Thursday at MCRD (Marine Corp Recruit Depot) in San Diego. Today we got to see the graduation ceremony which was amazing. I wish I could convey the sense of pride and history the ceremony had. I have to sort through the couple hundred pictures I took and then I can put up a picture of him in his dress blues. What a wonderful, emotional couple of days it's been, and I can't wait to get a chance to spend some time just talking to him and catching up on life. He's home for ten days on leave, then gone again, so for ten days, the world will be as it should for my family!
