pride

My brother called my mom on Mother’s Day. When I talked to her after she had gotten off the phone with him, she gave me an overview of what he told her. He has been made a squad leader and recieved an award for superior shooting with his M-16. Mom said 4 people in his company recieved this award. He will graduate with a pin now. This is such a turnaround from him telling me in his last letter that he hopes they’ll send him home. The army is a good thing for him.

  1. My dad has that award. Do you know if he got the sharp shooter, marksman or expert level?

    Glad to hear your brother is doing well. He’s in my prayers.
