    Congrats
    My oldest daughter joined up to, she's had (the invasion tour) of Iraq and a tour of Afghanistan, her moms hair is now completely white, but dad got to pin her Sgt. E-5 stripes on her last year.
    Our kids God bless'em and keep them safe.

    With the utmost of respect, I salute her...and as her father, you certainly can be proud of her decision.

    She has not told me yet, but when I announced that I will be taking flying lessons soon she hinted it had something to do with aircraft, and is holding out to tell us tomorrow. She wants to take us out to dinner and a movie and fill us in on the details, damn if this does not feel like Christmas eve.

    congratulations to her. and it's great to see supportive parents, especially in these trying times for the military. hooah!
    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    Does she already have her degree? If so, she probably will go through Basic, then on to OCS.

    I had a guy in my basic training platoon at Fort Jackson, SC who had actually gone to The Citadel, but in order to get his commission, had to go through basic with all the rest of us kids. He was a Specialist E-4 from day one at basic, was made the platoon leader (meaning he took all kinds of hell from the drill sergeants) and taught us all how to shine our boots and shoes the Citadel way...like glass.

    He was made a 2nd Lt. at Basic graduation, BTW

    I wish your daughter all the best; my time in the Army was some of the best years of my life. She will gain lots of experience and come out with a marketable job skill from what it sounds like.
