I am pleased to announce to the world my daughter Jerrica Lee has enlisted in the US Army. She is planning to become an army nurse after already completing a program of EMT (emergency medical technician). She is leaving Nov. 14th for boot camp in Texas and will be home for Christmas before going on to South Carolina for her training. I wish her and our troops Godspeed.
Yes, I am proud of her despite my feelings of uncertainty about the war. I fly to my second home every month in Colorado and see several young men who are injured on commercial flights going home thru the Denver Airport. Their injuries and pain sufferred was hard to accept in my mind seeing it up close in that way. It makes me proud to think of her taking care of the Army injured. What mother wouldnt be proud it takes a lot of guts these days to fight for your country and to serve your country. I will miss her terribly.
