Okay... so today, I stop by the Air Force Recruiter's Office in Frederick, to follow up a phone call John had placed concerning RAP (I'll post on this next time!) The Airman behind the desk was in RAP, so we began to chat. This young man, was sharing that he had left for BMT on 12.18.2007, was able to spend Christmas and New Year's at Lackland. He then had the pleasure of attending Tech School at Lackland (tongue in cheek)... I chuckled with him, as he reflected on being able to hear his TI's voice each and every day! He asked about John's TI, I shared the name and this Airman's replied that this fine gentleman was THE toughest at Lackland! GULP!
John, my respect for what you endured those 6-1/2 weeks, went to the moon in that instant! Son, you are awesome!
I never, ever want or need to hear details... as I was told at Graduation...what goes on in the Dayroom, stays in the Dayroom. Uh-huh!
Hmmmm...what doesn't kill ya, makes ya stronger????
John, I do love you so!!!!!!!!!
