I present to you Private First Class Beverly Abel.

She did not get here chevrons sewed on before graduation as she was promoted for merit to E2-private second class the day before, and her promotion for getting someone to enlist with her didn't catch up with her until the day of graduation.

First photo is family day, the day before graduation, second is during graduation ceremony. Sorry for quality.

Congratulations,
Thank her for the dedication and thanks to your family for your support. My wife and I know that the family is also very involved when a son or daughter take the oath.

Congratulations! Make sure you tell her the G503 crowd are proud of her! :wink:

Takes some effort for her and you during this time... glad to see you all got thru it.

I remember when two of my sons finished boot... challenging times!

Outstanding !!
Obvious she has come a long way since induction.
See she qualified ( Expert ?? ).
First weapon I qualified with was an M-14. Along time ago. List grew.
No doubt something more exciting now days.
Tell her I am proud of her and give her a big hug for me !!

Good looking young men in your photo as well, Mark.
Graduating from basic was a relief, but then you go on to advanced training.
If that happen to be infantry related, the fun was not over !!
Some relief then, if your next duty station was not in a combat theater.
