Whoa, has it really been three years since Number One Son left the house with his social security card, drivers license, $20 in cash, a small scrap of paper with addresses, a few stamps, and the clothes on his back and headed to the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) in Cleveland? Then, started his long, tiring journey to Parris Island, SC?
Yes, it has been three years. Three years today.
I believe that the three year anniversary is special to Corporal Number One Son, as he is able to re-enlist and also choose his next duty station. All indications are that he will re-enlist (have you seen the job market out there?). Not sure where his next duty station will be, but I am absolutely certain that he will do well wherever the Marine Corps send him.
Happy anniversary, Number One Son.
