Jacob is now apart of the color guard team for Hotel Company of 2nd battalion. He had his first family day performance and graduation this week. They did great! I was so proud of him. Listening to the battalion commander talk at family day almost brought tears to my eyes. I have a feeling at Jacob's actual first platoon graduation, on September 11th, I might cry!!! What can I say, I am a softy! It is just so amazing to know that our husband's (that is for all you DI wives) get to make a huge impact on these boys...that after seventy long and hard training days, Jacob will have helped produced a Marine.
Here are some pictures from family day and graduation. Jacob is the one on the left when looking at the group. He is carrying a rifle.
