This afternoon my oldest granddaughter became Private Nicole.
She will finish High School this coming spring and toward the end of summer will leave for Basic Training.
I want to cry because my grandbaby is all grown up. But I can't because I am way too proud of her to shed tears. She did not come to this decision easily. She gave it serious thought, did her research and decided that the Army was the best fit for her.
Nicki, I have always been proud of the person you are, but I have never been more proud of you than I am right now.
