Our Marine Graduate!

001_photo1This is one of our grandsons, Aerik Walter, just before tomorrow’s (Friday, 12-21-12) graduation from Marine Boot Camp. The Marine barracks look about the same as the Air Force barracks more than 50 years ago. My basic was at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio, Texas. Aerik’s training was at Parris Island, South Carolina. Note the locker at the foot of the bed. Maintaining a neat foot-locker was part of the drill…always be ready for inspection. Aerik has an older Marine brother, Dustin, who soon will be headed to Afghanistan for the second time. Dustinfirstmarinephoto Dustin’s assignment is the military version of an Air Traffic Controller. Early indications are that Aerik will be in an Intelligence Unit. We’re so proud of them both!!
