    Make sure she leaves the lip jewelery at home. My daughter had two of those things, thankfully she took them out finally.

    Congrats on the new recruit, we need more brave souls defending our freedom. Thank her for me.

    Congrats for the new recruit. I did notice the lip ring. Make sure she understands that she will not be allowed to have that during basic.

    Very pretty young lady. Love her dress. That is quite a decision she has made. Don't know the requirements (I should) but can she apply to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs? Is she interested in continuing her education? My daughter went into the AF shortly after graduation and she is so glad that she did. She went in enlisted and then later went to Officer's school. She got to travel, got an education (now starting her PhD). She didn't initialy plan it, but it's become her career. 20 years now. She's only 39 so she'll probably put in 10 more and retire at age 50. Because of her moving around I've found new places to travel to. I've been to Japan, England, Wales, France. It's great to have a place to stay and she loves to have family visit.

    Good luck to your granddaughter. (Lip ring has to go)
    What base is she going to visit?

    My daughter had one of those things too. She took it out during her 1st pregnancy. She said it wasn't attractive on a woman who was 7 months pregnant..lol..guess it stuck out under her clothes..lol
