Last week around this time I got three back-to-back phone calls from Lauren letting me know the Marines called her up early and she ships out on Tuesday. It’s been a whirlwind ever since.
I look back on the week and can’t even believe how much has happened and how busy we were preparing for Tuesday. We had A LOT to accomplish in 4 days.
Lauren has been a member of the Delayed Entry Program since June. In order to depart for recruit training she had to pass everything so she was more than ready to receive that phone call last Friday.
She was originally scheduled to ship out February 2012 but because someone in Iowa couldn’t pass their tests she got to fill that spot.
