Ahhh, the Army life

It's one week to go before my oldest son Mike marries the love of his life Tara. SGT Mark is supposed to be the best man. Does he know whether he will make it yet? Nope. Seems the Brigade is holding a 10-day field exercise beginning Tuesday that starts with an all battalions jump. Mark has stress fractures in both legs so he will miss that part. But now that he is at battalion HQ, he has a lot more responsibilities than he did when he was on the line. Will he get a pass? Who knows. He assures us that things will work out. In the mean time, there is a $130 tuxedo waiting for him.

AM,

Hope so too. Thanks.

MM,

Still up in the air. It's brigade exercise - 10 days in the field -
And yes on the stress fractures. Probably broke them on first tour.
