Got a letter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I got my first letter yesterday from my friend Julia. I just wanted to tell all of you how proud I am of her. She joined the Army. Shes in her 30's and is in basic training with women 17-22 years old. She was a smoker, but hasn't had a cigarette. She's had to do mega push ups because some of the women can't keep quiet, but she said that this is her dream and she is enjoying every minute of it!

That is so cool. I wanted to join my senior year in High School but I got pregnant with my oldest and they actually stamped "TERMINATED" on my papers. Ticked me off. Congrats to Julia.

Good for her!!

My next door neighbour Matt was made Sergeant a couple of month ago after being in 12 years and he loves it, his girlfriend was also in but only stuck it out for 2 years because she couldn't hack the long hours, being away on exercise etc...

I really hope your friend does well because she can go far

That is awesome!! My SIL joined at the last year she could (is it age 35?) and stayed in for the next 20 yrs. Went to the reserves, & got reactivated when the war came. She works in logistics; and loves her "boys". She has been so many different places all over the world; has even worn a burkha to meetings; now speaks 5 languages. She joined after losing a bitter divorce/custody battle & was so despondent; her life sure turned around. Just completing basic training gave her so much confidence & boy, was she in great shape!
So, HURRAY for Julia!!! WAY TO GO! I hope that we are kept posted on your progress.
