Mike spent an enduring six months training at Quantico to gain the basic skills of a Marine Corp Officer. He did very well, graduating near the top of his company on March 16. We are so proud of you, Mike! Congratulations!
As promised, here are a couple of shots from Mike's graduation. The pictures taken at the actual ceremony didn't turn out, unfortunately, but here are some taken afterward. Mike's parents came in town for the event and I took a couple of pictures of Mike with his mom and dad, but it must've been with their camera. Ginger, if you're reading this, can you send me the pictures from your camera?
I love Mike in this uniform. Soon, he will add another uniform to his collection... a flight suit!
