It's all over but the cleaning.

They have done it.
2nd Platoon C Troop 5th Squadron 15th Cavalry has completed their training at Fort Knox. They will be out processing, turning in gear and cleaning from now until graduation next week and I honestly think I speak for all the parents and loved ones when I say we will be happy to watch our Soldiers exit Kentucky, it has been a hard 16 weeks for all those involved.
We will be leaving late Tuesday/early Wednesday morning heading to Ft. Knox where we plan on enjoying graduation dinner with Christopher, Matt and his family and the rest of their troop on Wednesday night and then we will proudly watch our Cav Scouts graduate on Thursday morning.
After graduation we will meet Chris at the airport before he flies out to Ft. Drum NY and then we will wait with baited breath to see if he will be able to come home for Christmas leave.
I am not sure how much posting I will be able to do this weekend, so if I do not update before we leave I promise to post everything and pictures as soon as we get back.

God Bless,
