Fort Jackson Basic Training Graduation

The Bear graduates Basic Training tomorrow, so the family and I are on post and having a great time!

It looks like he has grown a couple of inches and he looks great! We are so very proud of him and his accomplishments. I'll have pictures as soon as I can download them, assuming that I did bring the SD card reader.

More to follow my friends!

Best regards,

Looking forward to hear how it went. I went to Fort Knox myself (tanker).

Thank you all!

We are really impressed by his attitude and new found appreciation for his family!

The Army is nothing like the Army of the 80s! I've never, ever, seen so many gray haired private e-1's!

There's lots more which I will share on the Tactical Blog. Some of it good, some of it not very good.

The Bear's going to be a fine soldier and he's off to his advanced individual training tomorrow. We get to see him once more in the morning before he takes off, then 17 weeks of training in the deserts of Arizona before he gets back.

Best to everyone!
