27 more days until Geramie’s graduation..OOH RAH!!
I finally got a “real” letter and learned he scored so well in shooting that he earned the “Expert” title, and will get the Expert Medal at graduation…go on with your bad self Ger ! Okay, so spparently the war type video games do have some value after all, yes? Hahaha.
He got his first fitting for uniforms yesterday and has regained most of the weight he lost.
So for the last almost 9 weeks, what all the recruits have been training for – The Crucible – is only 8 days away, 54 hours of only 8 hours sleep that will challenge them to their very core. When he hikes back down the “Reaper” (mountain they must climb up and back down at last part of Crucible hike) he will be considered one of the proud and few….go Ger go!
What an experience with Ger going through Marine boot camp for me as a mom and Jordan Ervin as his brother. Reading his letters and seeing the transformation is absolutely amazing. I cannot even begin to fathom what this experience has been to Geramie Ervin, but he is earning his title, and I can’t be any prouder or excited!
Delta Company Platoon 1062!!!! — feeling amazing.
