armymom.jpgBut I'm the Mom, and hey, it's my job, right? The source of my current pride is my daughter, who has just been accepted into the U.S. Army. She ships to basic training in MO on Nov. 15. Upon completion, she will be stationed with the 229th Military Intelligence Battalion, Presidio of Monterey, CA, for 12 months. While there she will be trained at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center for work in cryptography.

She has worked very hard for this … most notably she had to lose a significant amount of weight to qualify. I'm so proud of her!
