More Pictures!!!


Ah yes, the family picture!! Now mind you, this is the first one taken since being apart for so long! :) Happiness! I can't tell you how good it feels to feel "complete" again! I shall enjoy it while it lasts!

Our dear Mrs. Coffey who the Lord has used in so many areas of our lives! I would have to say that she is one that I sincerely look up to as a mentor and influencer in my life! :) She is such a blessing to all those who she comes in contact with and my prayer is that when I grow up, I will be just like her! :)

Sorry for the unorderly photos here...Picasa is great but I think that I am still learning how to "blog" with it! :) Anyways, the curtain opened to....tadah!...the guys standing at attention just like they are on stage! It was the coolest sight to behold! :) The men stand behind their squad leaders who, aside from the "guidon bearer" stand in front

Mrs. Coffey, my mom, and I all sit and wait in eager anticipation to squeeze the guys! :) Oh boy, time couldn't have passed fast enough! :) It all seems like a breeze now....but let me tell ya, it was horrible then! :) And yes, for those that desire to know, tears freely flowed upon reuniting! Words can hardly express the moment! :)

Stay tuned for more! :)

Even More! :)

Here are some pictures of the guys after the ceremony and reuniting as a family with some of their buddies as well as pictures with Col. Tanner

Nate, Josh and Andrew pose with Samuel Ahn who came all the way from South Korea to go through Basic. From the stories I have heard, he seems like a really funny guy!

Josh stands with James Enquist, a squad mate...I know from what the guys have said that he was the fastest runner in the Unit!

Josh, Andrew, and Nate all pose with Col. Tanner who is amazing gentleman carrying such incredible honors!

Alex Nutter, whom the guys stand with, is the tallest guy, was on Josh's squad, and gave the Unit's testimony during the Promotion Ceremony. I have heard lots of great stories about him and how much of a leader he was for the Unit among many other guys as well. :)

More Pictures!

Here are some more pictures of the guys! Unfortunately they seem to be flowing out of order however, I am sure that they will be enjoyed none the less!

Here the guys stand again in "parade rest." This is the Unit as a whole including the drill sergeants in the front right hand side. This picture is one of my favorites!

They Unit is headed out after their demonstration for the rest of the ceremony inside. As they left, they sang the main "jodie" which is well known through ALERT and on the ALERT CD

Some Pictures!

I wanted to post some pictures for you all to see! Again, my computer will only allow me to post 4 at a time so I am sure that you will enjoy every posting! :)

Here you find Andrew and the rest of Echo squad standing in "parade rest" awaiting the moment to perform their drills sequence.

Josh standing in "parade rest" at the beginning of the drills sequence.

Here's Andrew :)

Here's Nate... we actually didn't recognize him with his hat on but then again, we were looking for him to be standing along with the rest of his squad much like Josh and Andrew however, as they demonstrated repelling, it would have been difficult
