The first day of the rest of his life

All he took with him...a Bible and a toothbrush. And I think they'll issue him another toothbrush.

They gave us a list of what he'll be generally doing in boot camp: exotic things such as Pugil Sticks & NIghttime Rappeling, ominous things such as Innoculations III & Gas Chamber, stuff you'd rather not know about: Chokes & Bayonet Techniques, and even a few things to look forward to: after 11 weeks, Four Hours of "Recruit Liberty", and of course, Graduation.

I'm sitting here wondering how I'd feel. Proud, scared, uncertain. I'm praying for your family, especially you and Gray.

That's an awe-some (in the scary awe kind of way) shot.
