Yesterday we drove down south to see our youngest son graduate from boot camp! He’s been in basic training for the National Guard for the past 8 weeks, as well as it’s been pretty hard for him. But I think it’s been even harder for me, which is a little funny! I hated having him be gone for 8 whole weeks. It was rough on all of us, especially when I couldn’t call as well as talk to him whenever I wanted! But we were super cheerful when we got I got to spend the day with him and then see him graduate over the weekend! He told us all about boot camp as well as all of the obstacles that he had to overcome throughout the whole process. He mentioned one of the most difficult parts was how the high temperatures over the summer time at boot camp had been. Your son says they don’t use a/c in most of the buildings on base, because they are trying to toughen the guys up… My child said that if anyone complained about the lack of cooling system, they were told that there’s no a/c in most third world countries as well as since you might get sent to a humid island someday, you might as well get used to the heat! I thought that it was odd that there wasn’t even any a/c in their bunk rooms, especially since the temperature was so high, as it was summer time. My child said that the only break from the heat as well as high temperatures was in the chow hall. He said that the chow hall was consistently cold as well as the a/c in there seemed like it ran consistently.
