As You Prepare To Leave For Basic Training


April 16, 2018.

This is the day you leave and it is quickly starting to get closer. As much as I am not looking forward to saying goodbye and I am sad that you have to leave for fourteen weeks, I am so excited for you to start this new journey.

I am unbelievably proud of you for joining the Army National Guard. You have already accomplished so much and I cannot wait to see what else you will accomplish through this opportunity. I also cannot wait to hear all the crazy stories of things that happened while you are at basic.

I am already counting down the days till you graduate and you haven't even left yet.

No matter how sad I may be, it makes me extremely happy to see you so happy and excited for the next steps you are about to take. You will do amazing things Dylan and I know that everyone is so proud of you.

I will continue to cherish the little bit of time that we have left together before reality sets in. You are going to be bettering yourself, your future, and everything you have been looking forward to is getting super close to happening.

No matter where the National Guard takes you, I will be right here when you get back. I wouldn't trade our relationship for anything and I am so extremely proud of you and everything you have already done.

Also don't forget to write me letters while you are there!!

Good luck during the next 14 weeks at Fort Benning and I cannot wait to see you in July!!

I love you so much!!!
