We found out on Friday that my brother, John, will be leaving for basic training on May4th. He enlisted in the Marines a few months ago, but was awaiting a Linguist opening. We were counting on October, so this all seems a little sudden. I am so proud of my little brother. I am grateful that there are those willing to put the safety of their loved ones and the liberty of their country first, and are willing to give their lives to protect it. I love you John, and will miss you more than I can say.
