My niece is leaving for boot-camp next week. She enlisted in the Marines after she graduated high school. I commend this young lady for trying to make something of herself. She has not had an easy life. She has received lots of negative feedback from friends and even family over her decision to enlist.
I am posting this blog post hoping that my readers would leave a word of support and encouragement for a young woman trying to better herself. I will give her a link to this post in the card I give her before she leaves.
If you are female that was, or is, in military service, even better! Please do not leave anti-American, anti military commentary. The goal is to make a young lady smile and encourage her not use it as a platform.
Her name is Darcey.
Thank you for considering.
