Today my husband graduated from WLC! WLC stands for Warrior Leader Course. I am so proud of him! He has been waiting to go to WLC forever it seems. For one reason or another it hasn’t worked out until now. Baby J and I were able to attend the graduation ceremony today. I sadly didn’t see Ben during the actual ceremony. I just knew he was in the back row and he knew that we were there. It gave me chills when all the men and women started singing the Army Song. What a great feeling that was! To know Ben was apart of something like this. That he was entering into a different role in the Army. That he will be moving on to new responsibilities both when he is at home and when he has to go to war again.
After the ceremony they gave us 10 minutes to spend with the soldiers but it took me about that long to find him. When I did I gave him a hug and a kiss and told him congratulations. I am glad that the training is over. It will be great having him around for dinner again.
