Trip to Parris Island
« on: January 18, 2012, 04:35:21 AM »
Well I'l be leaveing tommow mourning to Parris Island South Carolina for my brother graduation ceremony from the Marine Corps Recruit training(Boot Camp) :cheers  So I probably wont be posting anything till Saturday, unless there wireless internet at the hotal I'll be staying at. This is also a good opportunity to visit an other state considering that I lived in Florida all my life and visited only the state of Georgia on seveal occasions. And after the graduation ceremony, my brother will be coming back home with us for his ten day leave to be with family and friends. And even though I have not been posting as much as I use too, but I been keeping an eye on things on the board. Anyway I might also post a few pictures of the base and graduation ceremony when I get back.

So in case of invasion by water-stealing aliens your brother will be the first to fight, huh? :D

Seriously now: congratulations to your brother on his graduation.  :cheers

Sorry for the late reply, I been too busy to reply since I got back from the trip.  :(

But anyway the ceremony went well and we both had a good time. And he also showed me  the barracks he stayed in. And I also went to the Parris Island military museum, alot of neat stuff they have there especially with all the various weapons. :D

I tell y'all some of the stories my brother told me when he was in boot camp when I have time, aswell as a few pictures.
