The Boy Went to Camp

Processed with RookieHe packed his bag, put in his BDU’s and was ready to go!

Marksmanship training camp is what the boy signed up for.

He loves his weapons.

So for a week we sent him off to learn all about as many as he could remember and have the chance to actually fire many of them.

That is some thick foam there!!

Ha ha ha!!

They had a nice range just for them.

The parents and wives who send their loved one away for 7+ months at a time, they are so strong!!

God is the only way I would be able to make it through that.

Here is the day we picked him up.

Had to grab his orders and then we got to come back home.

After he said goodbye to all his new friends.

I know he really loved finding so many young men that enjoy the same things he does.

They all plan on joining the service in a few years too.

Here is one of the targets Jr brought home that he shot at.

That is why I have a shotgun!!

Ha ha!

He already has the goal of going back next year and becoming an expert marksman.

I guess he found his calling :)

Have a safe and blessed day friend!
