Hello From Fort Sill, Oklahoma

Well, after a long silent period we finally heard from our daughter Tara at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The soldiers in training were allowed to call home for this weekend.
Just to hear her voice describing things that she has been learning ensured us that she is making her strong presence felt. She spoke of things she liked and things she doesn't like ... but she genuinely sounds happy.
Physical Training, Drills, Marches, Classroom, Convoys, Food, Weapons, Combat, Repelling, and on and on. She said, "Dad, ... do you remember watching Renaissance Man? ... well it's kinda like that."
Just seeing her smile in this photo from her cellphone made our seperation a bit more joyful. Still praying for you out there little girl!
Love, Dad
