Brandon left this morning. I dropped him off at the Ranger Training Brigade at 10:30am. He had nearly 150 pounds of equipment to bring with him! This morning we shaved his head (it's all prickly now!) and ate some breakfast, then we left. We got lost for a bit but finally found where we needed to be.

Of course, he's only be gone for a couple hours, so I haven't been bothered by it yet. I get to see him on August 14, so less than 3 weeks. That's an easy time to complete! After that we'll be apart for longer... but he'll be home before I know it, I hope.

I worry about him physically - I just hope his back and feet can handle all the rucking and movement. But he's stronger than we can all imagine, so I know he can do well. I'm just waiting for his first letter to come! Soon enough!
