Chase is in the Army

This is yet another LATE post considering when Chase left.  Sorry :/Late June 2010 016Anyway, I may have told some people, but, my cousin, Chase, has officially left for Basic Training (BT) in the Army!  He left on June 22nd.  Ronnie, Teresa, Ashlee, Phillip, Mom, Dad and I all went to the airport to see him off.  He actually began BT on June 28th, and he will have graduation on September 2nd.  From there, he will continue on in his job training that will go throughout Fall.

Ronnie, Teresa and Ashlee have already received a couple letters from him, and he seems to be doing well.  He’s set some goals for himself in his PT test in order to pass with flying colors.

Here’s some more pics of Chase’s departure from IAH!Late June 2010 004Late June 2010 005Late June 2010 006 Late June 2010 007 Chase has a very WELL PACKED backpack.  This is all he was allowed to take, so Teresa helped him pack it to the max!Late June 2010 009Late June 2010 010 Late June 2010 011 Late June 2010 013 Late June 2010 014 Late June 2010 015 Late June 2010 017 Late June 2010 018

Now, here is where I need your participation MORE THAN EVER!  If you’d like, please leave a comment of some kind to Chase.  I will print this post and it’s comments and send to Chase.  Any words of encouragement that you’d like give him would be much appreciated :)  Thanks!
