My grandson Connor is about halfway through Basic at Fort Jackson, SC. I sent him a big bag of M&Ms. Seems those are regarded as “contraband” and brought scrutiny from his Drill Instructors. My bad! The contraband goes into a “personal” bag until he graduates. He tells me he is looking forward to eating them.
AIT will be training as a mechanic on Armored Equipment which will lead to being a diesel mechanic as a civilian plus the Guard will help with his college.
He graduates Basic April 29th. At the moment Fort Jackson is closed due to Kong Flu. Hope that changes; I want to be there as I was for his father.
He becomes a fifth generation soldier.
Great great Uncle Leonard White served as a Cavalryman during WWI fighting the Mexican border war.
