We had a couple of going away parties for Stephen this weekend. We hung the American flag in the front and the Marine flag inside on the wall. We had a wonderful time with family and friends.
The recruiter picked him up at 4am this morning and drove him to the MEPS. Then on to San Diego to the MCRD. We are still waiting for his phone call. Lord willing, Yoshi will greet a new Marine in 13 weeks.
