Today I found out my nephew has joined the army infantry. I had spoken with him about a week ago and he was enrolling in college and was picking courses and all that. He had always talked about wanting to join the military, but last time I saw him he said it was going to be after college. So this news is a bit of a shock. He ships out to basic training on Monday. I imagine it'll be Iraq after that.
*sigh* I sure hope he stays safe. I still remember him as a little kid... now he's all grown up.
Good luck Josh!
