Warrior Forge Graduation

This morning, Zach graduated from Warrior Forge at Ft. Lewis. Designed for college ROTC students who have just finished their junior year, it's thirty days of training (things like land navigation, hand grenades (!), training exercises) away from the world.

It's the first time he's been so close in the U.S. that we could be there for a ceremony. Tim, Brandon (in his fatigues fit for a seven-year-old) and I had the chance to see him graduate with his platoon: Bravo Company, 1st Platoon. He's off to Ft. Hood tonight in Texas, and we will see him for a few days when our paths cross in August in Iowa.
