I am in fine health, I get stouter every day, the army seems to agree with me. If I improve as I have been doing I will look somewhat like a man by the time I come home again. I have been interrupted twice since I commenced this letter, once to go on battalion drill and the second time to go on dress parade. I guess I will get to close it now. We have not been payed yet except 13 dollars that we were payed while at Greensburg.

Army soldiers have the opportunity to join the Ranger regiment, and if you’re an infantry soldier you can compete for Special Forces selection. Both of these military branches serve to protect this great nation, and are the ones to be called upon in time of trouble. I am not trying to take anything away from the other, but the Army has more fields of specialties.

We were surrounded without spears, Thousands of enemies were still ahead and we had no hope of survival. The Persians fired all of their arrows at us, we tried to repel them but there were too many arrows to block.

I have always had extenuating circumstances that have put things before an investment in myself. I have decided that it is finally time to make me and my education the priority.

One of the scariest days of my life was the day I brought my first child, Noah home. I can remember getting home and feeling like I had no idea what I was doing. I was exhausted, sore, and scared out of my mind. I remember everyone telling me you just know what to do when you become a mother, but here I was with this little person, and I felt completely lost.

First I went to Publix to get water and canned food that can last for a while just in case I don 't get a chance to get food after the storm. Next I went to my garage and got the shutters. It took me hours to put them up alone and by the time I finished doing this the storm was a day away. I then went to home depot and got batteries, flashlights, a radio, a generator, and bought a raft just in case. I later took my car and went to the gas station that had a huge line.
