I made it!


So, a lot has happened since my last update. I have been really busy with training an all that. So, we had graduation on Dec. 16 2011, but the days leading up to it were some of the worst.

Monday, Dec. 12- Most of the flight has limited uniforms. Some people had white shirts, but nobody had ceremonial's. We basically

worked on small things like fitting our belts, siliconing our gloves, and shaving our scarves. We had a meeting with someone important about something that I cant remember.
Tuesday, Dec. 13- Basically Monday all repeated. Some people started to get more uniform parts, and were able to de-string.
Wednesday, Dec. 14- We all got our uniform parts and pieces. We started to learn how to take care of them as far as iorning and cleaning. Also, learned how to pin all of our accouterments on. Some grad. practice.
Thursday, Dec. 15- Grad. practice all day, along with a smoke session. I think the instructors wanted to get one last one in...

Friday, Dec. 16- BEST DAY EVER!!! We woke up at 0400, got into ceremonials, got into pt gear, went and practiced with sneakers on, came back and got our triple soles, did practice with them, got beat a little bit because our rooms weren't empty, got into ceremonials. GRADUATED! Then, the rest of the day consisted of cleaning out my dorm room and chilling.

Saturday, Dec. 17- Moved in to our new
house! A 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1 car garage
townhouse on JBAB.

We (Heather and I) have been able to have a
wonderful past few days with my parents as
they helped move us down to D.C. My awesome
dad drove the Penske truck and helped load and
unload, while my super mom helped put stuff away,
then saved me a bunch of $$$$$$ by sewing down all
of my pockets and sewing my rank on.

So, that is what we have been up to. Here is a link to my Honor Guard Tech School class video, its a
really awesome, and shows some of the stuff we have done here. I encourage you to check it out.

You look mighty fine in that uniform! Congrats again on your graduation, and you are most welcome for the help. Glad we could get away to do it. Nice to spend a few days with you as well.
