A day of remembrance for me

I meant to post this yesterday, but I had been so tied up with biology homework. Twelve years ago yesterday was my first day of boot camp. I think most of us veterans remember that day all too well. Nine weeks of ‘WTF did I decide to put myself through?’ But when the day came to graduate boot camp, I didn’t have to look back at those nine weeks, as the next four years were going to be one heck of a ride and something I’ll always remember.

    Whoa, your awesomeness points just skyrocketed. That’s so cool. I have an extremely good friend who’s been in the military forever. She recently went to survival training. From what I hear it’s insane. Did you ever do that? Still, I imagine boot camp would definitely show you what you’re made of. Thanks for being one of those willing to go and defend our freedoms. I certainly appreciate you! ๐Ÿ˜€

        She said it really tests your mental strength more than your physical. Part of me is tempted to want to try it, the more sensible part says just stick with kung fu. ๐Ÿ˜€

        I’m not sure on the specifics. She said some of it was classified, so she didn’t give me much, just that it was to know how to deal with enemy torture if you’re captured along with surviving, I think if you were to fall behind enemy lines. It sounded brutal… yet, there’s still that little part of me… you know what I mean. ๐Ÿ˜‰
