Morrow graduated from Bowdoin College in 1930 and was employed by the National Urban League and the NAACP as field secretary before entering the United States Army in 1942. He graduated from Officer Candidate School in 1943 and was discharged in 1946 as a major of artillery. In 1948, he earned his Juris Doctor degree from Rutgers University. In 1955, he joined President Dwight Eisenhower’s staff as administrative officer for special projects where he served until 1961. In 1963, Morrow published his account of the experience in his autobiography “Black Man in the White House.” In 1964, he became the first Black corporate executive at Bank of America.

This is Jackie Robinson on a horse. Today is Jackie Robinson Day, marking the day he became the first African-American in Major League Baseball when he played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers April 15, 1947. Did you know Robinson was stationed at Fort Riley in the early 1940s? He was drafted in 1942 and assigned to a segregated Army cavalry unit, the 9th Cavalry Regiment, making him part of the historic "Buffalo Soldiers." Robinson attended Officer Candidate School at Fort Riley and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in January of 1943. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1944. (What is strange to me is ,the best black roll models for black youth or any race of youth say less and do more. And the ones that talk loud /shout and point blame. white people call "Black Leaders". Jackie Robinson and other great men like him motivated other young men want to step up without a hand out. Jessie and Al made young men feel they needed a hand out to get up. And keep in mind Jackie Robinson didn ...

I'm proud of my military family and my heritage. Being a member of a family who has so many people who have served their country is a very big source of pride for me, and since I work with a veteran based company, I consider myself very fortunate to work with so many great men and women who have served their country. I'd like to introduce you all to my military family, starting with my grandfather James Taylor Hamilton. "Jim" Hamilton was born in Glen Campbell, Indiana County, PA on February 9, 1914. His father Robert Hamilton was a miner, and his mother Anne was a housewife. At the time of his birth his mother was 19, his father was 23. My grandfather only completed 8 years of grammar school, yet was almost put into Officer Candidate School after his ASR test results indicated he finished just a few points shy of the requirement. He was drafted into the Army in New Cumberland PA, and began his service on February 14, 1942. He deaprted for Europe on November 2, 1940 and was soon in the European Theater of ...

Subject: America Don't Make Them Like It Used Too This below list is really worth going over. It's not in any particular order, and the younger generation may not recognize many of these Hollywood star names of the past. These were REAL MEN, from a period in America's history, when some of HOLLYWOOD'S BEST - wore the uniform of the United States of America: Sterling Hayden, the original Renaissance Man. During WWII, He joined the US Marines as an enlisted man. He volunteered for O.C.S. (Officer Candidate School) and was commissioned a 2nd Lt. He then volunteered for the O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services), the precursor to the CIA. His undercover agent name was John Hamilton.He worked directly for General William 'Wild Bill' Donovan, the WWI Medal of Honor recipient, chosen personally by FDR, to head up the OSS. Hayden's top secret missions included parachuting into Yugoslavia and Croatia to smuggle guns and explosives. He was also responsible for establishing air crew rescue teams and E&E (evade & esca ...

Glad I found this site. I was only on the Truxtun from early 1972 until early 1973 when I got an early out to start college. Four years later I was back in the Navy as I had a house payment, a wife and a son and a daughter a few weeks short of being born, AND there were no jobs available in San Diego because we were still coming out of a recession. I could not get a job interview. So, since I was a former nuke, I asked the Navy about Officer Candidate School, and they accepted me. I had a darn good time as a Junior officer, but a head hunter hired me away to work Data communications management for Pacific Bell (AT&T). I worked that for 17 years. They paid me too much, so I retired at age 52 and have been writing books and having a wonderful time with life. MY division officer on the Truxtun was Iron Mike Hallett (football player for the academy). After I was commissioned in 1978, I was in Subic walking towards the main gate, and who should come walking towards me, but none other than Iron Mike. I salute . ...
So Edward Jones has graciously accepted my request and will postpone my interview process so that I may attend Officer Candidate School. I feel so blessed and thankful for the opportunity of continuing my chance at this career and to possibly become an Army Officer. Much thanks to all the NCOs that have helped me along the way during my time as an enlisted.
I have an opportunity to make some dreams a reality through the Army Officer Candidate School. As my packet goes before another medical review board I ask for everyone's prayer that it pass. I'm praying to use this opportunity to make things better for my family, soliders, and self.
I am sad to report I did not get a 110 GT score on my asvab.I got a 113! Officer Candidate School here I COME!!! HOAH!

Richard Winters Richard D. *** Winters was a United States Army officer and decorated war veteran.

Good luck to Benjamin Treseler, Benjamin Lyles, William Hinkamp, and Greg Gonzalez who shipped to Officer Candidate School this morning. Today is the next step in their quest to become a Marine Officer.

This time next week I'll be at Officer Candidate School to begin my career. Stoked, this week can't go by quick enough.
I remember his drill sergeant saying he should go to officer candidate school after he did that.
My son Ben just left for Quantico Virginia to attend the Marine Corp Officer Candidate School on a flight contract! Go get 'em Ben Meinjohans, proud of you!
A week to go until OCS! For those who would like to send me some motivational mail, my address is: Officer Candidate Jeremy Aaron Officer Candidate School Class 09-14 Officer Training Command Newport 1356 Meyerkord Ave. Newport, RI 02841 Chances are I will not write back for a while, if at all, but it'd still be great to get! And keep it simple, write on regular paper and plain envelopes! Anchors Aweigh!
I miss Dax McDaniel horribly. However, we will meet again, and I do take comfort in that. He's the most amazing man, and I'm sure will do more than the average in OCS. I invite you all with me in sending him the upmost positive energies all throughout his duration in Officer Candidate School.
Just got medically qualified to join the Marines...looks like going to Officer Candidate School this summer is actually a possibility!
Congrats to Alma Ruelas who was selected on the last PLC board! She will be attending Marine Corps Officer Candidate School this summer in Quantico Va.
Pocket paradigms A lot of folks like the center because it makes them sound reasonable and moderate. It also allows them to call other people extremists or gadflies or wishful thinkers for disagreeing with the conventional wisdom of the moment. Some members of the American elite have made whole careers of being measured and cautious. They like to write somber columns asking pompous questions like "Can the Center Hold?" What they really mean is: can they hold on to their power? But even if you do find the center, it's not necessarily the best place to be. My navigation instructor at Coast Guard Officer Candidate School explained it well: "If you take a navigational fix and it places you on one side of a rock and then you take another fix and it places you on the other side of the rock -- don't split the difference." Unfortunately, it's a rule not often followed in American politics.- Sam Smith
American Greatness - Soldiers' Stories SEAL Michael Murphy Michael Patrick Murphy (May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL posthumously awarded the United States military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions in 2005 during the War in Afghanistan. He was the first person to be awarded the medal for actions in Afghanistan; and the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. Michael Murphy was born and raised in Suffolk County, New York. After graduating from Penn State with honors and dual degrees in both political science and psychology, Murphy was accepted to several law schools, but decided to attend SEAL mentoring sessions at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. In September 2000, he accepted an appointment to the U.S. Navy’s Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Florida. On December 13 of that year, he was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy and began Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training in Coronado, Ca .. ...
I know what you're saying and there's always officer candidate school!
I'm an OSU Grad and fan, but not an anti-OU, OSU fan as can be seen by my shirt. As much as I hated OSU to lose to OU(again), I was hoping OU would annihilate Alabama but mainly for selfish reasons. "Suck it" Alabama OCS(Officer Candidate School) Cadre who gave me all kinds of crap for being from Oklahoma. I wish you many sleepless nights and inner turmoil over the loss to the inferior State of Oklahoma.
I kinda, well really, wanna do Marine Corp Officer Candidate School, Navy as a combat corpman, or just move somewhere cool after I graduate this summer, need a change in scenery!
Well, it's been fun and relaxing. My family, friends, and especially Marie made sure this few days of leave was well spent. Thank you to all of you. Now...I return back to Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island for four more weeks of 'fun and adventure'! Let's do this.
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of MG (Ret) Nicholas P. Kafkalas. Here is his obituary; An icon of the greatest generation, MG (Ret) Nicholas P. Kafkalas, 93, of Camp Hill, died peacefully in his home on Tuesday, December 31st. Born September 1, 1920 in Monessen, PA, to Peter and Pearl (Burk) Kafkalas, Nick was an exceptional student (the other students called him "The Pro," short for the Professor) and graduated two years early from high school, then enlisted in the PA Army National Guard in 1939. When WWII broke out, he attended OCS (Officer Candidate School), and then was assigned to the 54th Infantry, 10th Armored Division, serving as a rifle company commander in the European theatre. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge, was wounded in battle on the last day of February 1945, treated in an English hospital and sent back to Germany right after VE Day. He returned home in November 1945, and attended the University of Pittsburgh, and received his B.A. in Political Science in 1949. Dur . ...
Naval Slang Terms The Navy has a long and colorful history, one that matches the naval slang terms sailors use with aplomb. The slang is genuinely funny, once you get someone to explain to what all those acronyms mean. It is often developed to say something colorful without getting into trouble with the brass. The slang communicates a very wry sense of humor, with an arched eyebrow towards officers, protocol, and anyone with a supercilious attitude. It’s All in the Numbers The “90 day wonder” - this is the mocking description designated for officers who just graduated from the Officer Candidate School. Sailors also typically expand upon the description with sallies such as “90 day blunder” or “90 day miracle.” Women are at a premium at sea, and sailors are extremely attentive...but a woman who may not be a beauty queen on land becomes one when members of her sex are in the extreme minority. Sailors call a less than gorgeous woman a “2-10-2”; that is, she’s a 2 on a scale of 10 when you ...

My New Year resolution of which I've never cared to do before is to finish my 200 hrs of internship and my 7 ARE's and become a registered architect as well as taking the LEED AP exam and becoming a LEED AP. Also to get back into shape for Officer Candidate School!
Recap of the year: Met some outstanding people. Found some positive influence in my life. Passed the hardest phase of officer candidate school even when my own OCS recruiter doubted me. And best of all, Got reacquainted with an old friend who will walk this journey of life with me. It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, but I've had some good times and it was worth it. My hopes are that 2014 will top that. I guess I will have to stay tuned! Happy New year's everyone!
These Army years have been fun, stressful, demanding, life-changing, and above all, unpredictable. 2009 saw a cross-country move, Basic Training in Kentucky with Ryan Owen Williams and Officer Candidate School in Georgia with Natasha Fultz. 2010 brought two more moves with the family to Georgia and North Carolina before 2011 sent me to Iraq with Jonathan Gribben and Kuwait with Jessica Yahn. 2012 welcomed me back to Fort Bragg with never-ending work days with Patrick Mitchell that made me yearn for another deployment. 2013 began with recovering from a botched ankle surgery and a fond farewell to Active Duty with Ryan Dolak. After another cross-country trip, me and Lina M. G. Martin are back where we started in sunny LA. After 9 years of marriage, life is good. It's hard. It's unpredictable. But it sure is good!
In 2013 I went to Basic training, moved into my dream apartment, found a man who is unbelievably special, and started Army officer candidate school. It has been a pretty big year and I am SOOO excited to start 2014. I love choosing happiness!!
2013.. Has been a roller coaster for me. This year: I was blessed to return from a deployment knowing it would be my last (in the foreseeable future) safely. I am leaving an organization of the most professional and lethal fighting force I have ever witnessed. It has been an honor to serve with each if you. I was awarded an extremely prestigious award for something anyone in my formation would have done. I lost a very good friend during a training accident. This one hit me very hard and you are missed very much WOC Darrell Mc Nealy. I completed Warrant Officer Candidate School. And I am currently still in training. My family is healthy and growing quicker then I would like. For those of you still reading this, let share a drink with those that are not able to. Remember them while gathering with friends and family. Please be safe everyone and have a blessed new year.
2013 Reflections: This was a very difficult and challenging year; I endured a very emotional divorce and let go of the one thing I was determined to achieve; Officer Candidate School. I never knew or understood the power of emotion (love), its impact on one’s spirit or its ramifications … I knew deep inside I was resilient and wouldn’t endure my difficulties alone. I learned a great deal (and continue to) about myself. I learned quickly that my strength came from- morals, values, faith; from my daughters, aunts, brothers, friends, besties (Case for ALWAYS siding with me, Jayme for going with me on my unknown adventures), exes (lol), and my loving co-workers at WPD (Lucy sharing diet Coke with me). Positive things also happened this year; I received my Master’s with a 4.0 GPA (last semester), started body building with awesome results, ran a 10k and took 1st place, Received an autograph from VON MILLER, attended the best BRONCOS game ever, FIRST TIME GRANDMA lol, found my 3rd white hair, watched on ...

December 12, 1946 The Army Ground Forces authorized the discontinuance of the Officer Candidate School program at Fort Sill effective December 12, 1946 and Field Artillery OCS was officially closed when class graduated 21 individuals. Since opening on April 10, 1941, 26,209 Second Lieutenants had graduated and received commissions from the Field Artillery OCS. On December 31, 1946 all activities pertaining to OCS were transferred to the Army Ground General School at Fort Riley, Kansas. At that time Fort Benning, the birthplace of OCS, bade OCS a reluctant but short lived farewell. The Branch Immaterial OCS would remain at Fort Riley until after the reactivation of OCS programs during the Korean War. Seven OCS programs were activated during the Korean War (Infantry, Field Artillery, Signal, Ordnance, Anti-Aircraft Artillery (Fort Bliss) and Fort Riley (for all other branches). By 1954 only the Infantry and Field Artillery OCS remained.

The most decorated marine in history chesty puller served in the banana wars, both world wars, and Korea received 5 navy cross's an army distinguished service cross, silver star, bronze star, and purple heart. And led the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines during the battle of Guadalcanal, Battle of Henderson Field, Battle of Cape Gloucester,and the Battle of Peleliu. When he was growing up in Virgina Puller grew up listening to old veterans' tales of the Civil War and idolizing Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. then when he heard of the heroic actions of the 5th marines at Belleau Wood he enlisted in the Marine Corps then went to OCS(Officer Candidate School). After Graduation he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps but because of reduction in force from 73,000 to 1,100 officers and 27,400 men following the war led to his being put on inactive status 10 days later and given the rank of corporal. As a corporal, Puller received orders to serve in the Gendarmerie d'Haiti as a lieutenant, seeing action ...
A Mother's Prayer for Her Soldier Son Man's best friend teaches her son the priceless lesson that kindness always pays. By Gloria Cassity Stargel, Gainesville, Georgia The day our younger son Rick left home for the Marine Corps was a heart-wrenching one for me. Beside the fact that I just hate good-byes, this was my “baby” going off to become a fighting man. I couldn’t help worrying that military training would destroy Rick’s loving, compassionate spirit. Dear Lord, make him tough, if necessary. But, please, Lord, I prayed, keep him tender. Now who but a mother would make a request like that? Rick endured the rigors of basic training and Officer Candidate School. Then, after advanced instruction, he was assigned to the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, North Carolina. There—seeking a little off-duty peace and quiet of his own—he rented a small house out in the country. Always athletic, he looked forward to the solitude of his daily six-mile run along picturesque fields and meadows. A p ...

Revised 7/03 -- Paul Maloney's service information has been added. (Thanks, Paul!) That necessitated a correction in the number of officers and in the totals listed for the USA and USMC. (See next paragraph): Subject: Prep Grads on active duty in the Military, 9/11/2001 – Present Several Generalizations: Since 9/11/2001, eighty-six (86) Prep Alums have served (or are serving) in the U.S. Military. Of those, seventy-eight (78) have served as commissioned officers, including one who entered as an enlisted man and then later received a commission through Officer Candidate School (OCS). One alum has served as a warrant officer, and seven have served as enlisted men, including at least four non-commissioned officers (one corporal and three sergeants).

Thanks to Megan Peterson I got back into reading some larger novels a few years back and the author whose books I absolutely fell in love with were Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. I heard on the radio this morning, just moments before getting into the office, that Vince succumbed to his battle with prostate cancer this morning at age 47. Vince was a Minneapolitan through and through, a product of Saint Thomas Academy and the University of St. Thomas, pursued a career as a pilot in the Marine Corps and was preparing to go to OCS (Officer Candidate School) when he was medically disqualified from the aviation program. Vince wrote 15 books, worked as a story consultant for a season of 24, and was a frequent contributor on Fox News Channel. "I started reading everything I could get my hands on, Hemingway, Ludlum, Clancy, Tolkien, Vidal. I read fiction, nonfiction, anything, but I especially loved espionage." -- Vince Flynn April 6, 1966 - June 19, 2013

My modest contribution to Memorial Day: In the summer of 2008 I was stationed at Fort Benning, GA as the Chaplain for Officer Candidate School. I had agreed to perform a wedding in Kalamazoo, MI for a former Captain with whom I had deployed to Kuwait and Iraq the year before. My journey began at the Atlanta airport. After experiencing the agony of airport security, I made my way to the gate, and the flight was getting ready to board. I ran into 15 members of the Michigan National Guard who had just flown 20 hours from Kuwait and were flying with us to Chicago and then on to Michigan. None of them had a cell phone, so I gave them mine, and they took turns calling their loved ones to let them know they were safe and sound on U.S. soil. I looked around the packed terminal for anyone to volunteer their cell phone, but everyone averted my eyes. Finally a woman stepped forward and handed me her phone. By the time we boarded the aircraft all of the Soldiers had either made contact or left a message with a family ...

The Courage of Sam Bird By B. T. Collins From: READER'S DIGEST, May, 1989 "I didn't learn about leadership and the strength of character it requires from an Ivy League graduate course. I learned by watching one tall captain with proud bearing and penetrating eyes." – B. T. Collins I met Capt. Samuel R. Bird on a dusty road near An Khe, South Vietnam, one hot July day in 1966. I was an artillery forward observer with Bravo Company, 2nd/12th Cavalry,1st Cavalry Division, and I looked it. I was filthy, sweaty, and jaded by war, and I thought, "Oh, brother, get a load of this". Dressed in crisply starched fatigues, Captain Bird was what we called "squared away” ramrod straight, eyes on the horizon. *** you could still see the shine on his boot tips beneath the road dust. After graduation from Officer Candidate School, I had sought adventure by volunteering for Vietnam. But by that hot and dangerous July, I was overdosed on "adventure," keenly interested in survival and very fond of large rocks and deep .. ...

Link: COLLEGE STUDENT PRE-COMMISSIONING INITIATIVE (SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM) Imagine having your college junior and senior years fully funded. Now imagine getting a salary while you complete your college degree. That's what the College Student Pre-Commissioning Initiative (CSPI) scholarship program offers college sophomores and juniors. Better yet, this scholarship provides students with valuable leadership, management, law enforcement, navigation and marine science skills and training. It also provides full payment of school tuition, fees, textbooks, salary, medical insurance, and other benefits during a student's junior and senior year of college. The CSPI program's goal is to train future officers for success and prepare them for the rigors of Officer Candidate School (OCS). Each student is expected to complete his/her degree and all Coast Guard training requirements within 24 months after acceptance into the program. This includes attending Basic Training following selection, performing Coast Guard duties ...

"Do gooders and *** raisers" - by: Dr. Hakeem Baba Ahmed “The hands that tie up the hyena are those that will free her.” Hausa Proverb Senate President David Mark last week pleaded with Nigerians not to lose faith in the indivisibility of Nigeria. He asked constituents in his senatorial zone to pray harder and rally behind leaders so that together leaders and led will overcome the nation’s current problems. Senator Mark spoke two days after the Benue State governor Gabriel Suswan told a church congregation that the dwindling number of Christian governors in the North is a source of concern. He reminded them that the death of Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa and the hospitalization of the Taraba State governor has left him and Governor Jonah Jang as the only two Northern Christian governors standing. Those in the congregation not shocked by the statistics were jolted further when the governor revealed further that he is himself an active target of Boko Haram, and appealed to them to pray for him.

Early June 1969. Fire Support Base LZ GRANT. When I was in Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning, Georgia, a Major was teaching a class in Land Navigation. His comment was "the most dangerous thing that is, has to be a Lieutenant with a map". I believed that I was excellent with a map having graduated from the Army RANGER course. Anyway what did he know? On reporting to Vietnam I was taken to LZ GRANT where I met the Battalion Commander LtCol. STOTSER. He assigned me to Bravo Company which was in the field. I left LZ GRANT by helicopter enroute to Bravo's location. There I met the Company Commander CAPTAIN WALL. He assigned me to 1st Platoon. After meeting the Platoon members 1st Platoon was to go out and set up a night ambush along a known enemy route. We spent the night in the rain laying in the mud waiting for someone or something that never came. The next morning CAPTAIN WALL met with all platoon leaders and gave us our new location for the night. We receive orders from Battalion every evening a .. ...
In Memory of Pap Robert Lincoln Booker was affectionately known as “Pap” to his family and “Bob” to his friends. Pap started his life in Lufkin, Texas, the second son of Ila and John Olin Booker. After graduating high school, Pap joined the Marine Corps to follow his brother John into battle during WWII. Just after boot camp, the war ended and Pap enrolled at Texas A&M University. Before graduation, the Korean War broke out and Pap was called back to serve his country. During his second tour, he was assigned to be a Drill Instructor to train new recruits. After successfully training several platoons, Pap was assigned to the range to be a Rifle Instructor, an assignment that he was most proud of during his Marine Corps career. He was next sent to Officer Candidate School in Washington DC to entice him into re-enlisting as an officer. Having enough of military life, Pap returned to Texas A&M to finish his degree in Geology. After graduation Pap began working for Midwest Oil Company where he remained ...

This is who Lt. Michael P. Murphy is and now his ship that will carry his name. Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy United States Navy (SEAL) May 7, 1976 - June 28, 2005 Lt. Michael P. Murphy, fondly referred to by friends and family as “Murph,” was born May 7, 1976 in Smithtown, N.Y. and grew up in the New York City commuter town of Patchogue, N.Y. on Long Island.

America’s First Ever Hindu Congresswoman Will Take the Oath of Office Over the Bhagavad Gita Erin Gloria Ryan Last night, Hawaii not only elected Japan-born Mazie Hirono to be the first ever Asian-American woman elected to the Senate, they also elected Democrat Tulsi Gabbard as the first ever practicing Hindu to the US House of Representatives. Hawaii has been declared a Fox News Disaster Zone. Thirty-one-year-old Gabbard is the daughter of two conservative Hawaii politicians and first ran for office at age 21. After her first term, she voluntarily served on a 12-month tour of duty with Hawaii's National Guard, and then became the first woman in the history of the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy to be designated a "distinguished honor graduate." When she's sworn in this January, she'll take her oath of office over a Bhagavad Gita, a sacred text for followers of Hinduism, or Sanatana Dharma.. According to HuffPo, Gabbard's favorite verses include,

When I graduated from Army Officer Candidate School on 6 November 1963, we lieutenants were cautioned to not do two things: buy a new car and get married soon. On 9 November Virginia L.

AS a young girl in grade school I remember learning the Pledge of Allegiance, and even at that young age, saying it with pride and my hand across my heart. I remember singing America The Beautiful in choir and being so moved over, "purple mountains majesty and thy golden wheat of grain". Back then children were taught pride in being an American. I remember in the early 60's the very real threat of communism and some of my parent's friends building bomb shelters. I remember hearing stories of my Uncle Boyce who as a fighter pilot was killed at the age of 19 defending this country against communism. 19!!! His mother, my grandmother, never got over her only son giving his up his life for his country at such a young age!!! My own daddy went to Officer Candidate School so he could fly with the Air Force. He became a Lt. And all of this was to keep America and the world SAFE and free. It was to fight against the forces that wanted to cripple and destroy freedom. If my daddy knew what was going on in the world n ...

What a day! Publicly announced that Josh Kollar and Allison Lovenberg Kollar are moving to PA in 9 days to prep for Josh going to Marine Officer Candidate School. We've had some amazingly special years serving and growing together that I will always cherish! So excited for them and proud of their faith and courage. Bitter sweet. They will be missed greatly in LA and at Clarity. We also got to baptize 5 amazing people in the very cold ocean today together along with Josh Houston! So honored. Nothing like it!

Sad to leave our amazing friends, family, and church here in Santa Monica. But we are excited for the next adventure that God has for us. Next week we will head back to PA so that Josh can spend next year finishing his degree and then go to Marine Officer Candidate School. We are really excited for the road ahead!

After much discussion, prayer, and fasting, I announced this morning at Clarity that Allison and I will be moving back to PA. Big decision. I will be finishing my degree as quickly as possible and applying to Marine Officer Candidate School. Time to really put this Missional Living thing to the test. Pray for us as we prepare to move in the next two weeks and I prepare for borderline stupid obedience.

I am home with my new United States Marine. You can't imagine, well, for those of you who know me really well and have had years of experience with me, know I sobbed buckets of proud tears. I needed to be hooked up to a saline drip ~ dehydration came quickly. Tre is home for about 8 days and then he reports to Camp LeJeune in NC for school of infantry training. You know what was really wonderful - he couldn't wait to see me and hug me. I don't think he was overly thrilled when I ran beside him [yes, in heels] during drill practice shouting I love you Tre! Mommy loves you Boo! Oh well, he should have known it was coming; I did the same thing at Officer Candidate School Graduation for Chris and lord knows, I was in the line of scrimmage as often as I could be with Baby Aaron. This Mommy loves her 3 sons. Happy and proud.

They say it looks good and should be open by tomorrow (Sunday).
Today I enlisted in the Army National Guard. I'm starting out as a Private First Class. I report to Basic Training on 02Jan2013 @ Fort Benning Georgia. After Basic, I will be enrolled in Officer Candidate School. All of this, of course, is contingent on there not being a Mayan apocalypse. :)
I am very very proud of my son Kevin. After losing 52 pounds, today he officially PFC Calvert. He will be headed to Ft. Benning Georgia January 2, 2013 for basic training and then off to Officer's Candidate School. Another military person in my family to defend and protect our Constitution. He is going in as an E3 because of his college credits which means more money to start.
