        When Sam left for BCT he was pretty sure he was getting sent to MO for AIT, though VA would be SOOOOO much better!

            I can't join. I have something called Marfan Syndrome and it's hard for me to do regular day to day things sometimes. I would never make it through basic. I spent an hour the other day talking to 3 Army recruiters about it. Also, Sam already tried to get me to join before he realized that I'd never live through it.

              wow
              [B]Marfan syndrome[/B] (or Marfan's syndrome) is a genetic disorder of the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connective_tissue"][COLOR=#0066cc]connective tissue[/COLOR][/URL].
              It is sometimes inherited as a [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autosomal_dominant"][COLOR=#0066cc]dominant[/COLOR][/URL] trait. It is carried by a gene called [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FBN1"][COLOR=#0066cc]FBN1[/COLOR][/URL], which encodes a connective protein called fibrillin-1. People have a pair of FBN1 genes. Because it is dominant, people who have inherited one affected FBN1 gene from either parent will have Marfan's. Parents have a 50/50 chance of passing on the gene to their children.
              People with Marfan's are typically tall, with long [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limb_(anatomy)"][COLOR=#0066cc]limbs[/COLOR][/URL] and long thin fingers.

              how tall are you?

                            I know that I'll be paying for my age for awhile longer, but I'm very mature for my age. I know you probably think I'm just saying that, but I'm not. Everyone that knows me says it. Even the three Army recruiters said it the other day. They couldn't believe that I'm only 17. I had to take my licence out to prove it to them. I'm not really trying to prove anything. I could careless if you think I'm really young, I am, but I don't act like it.

                              women mature faster than men. I know alot of young ladies that act older than they age. Especially my two daughters.

                                It wasn't meant as an insult. But if you are truely serious about this young man, you need to toughten up alittle. This is basic training, and he is gone for about 4 months. What are you going to do if he deploys to Iraq for 15 months and is out on convoys day after day and cant call you? How bout if he goes to 'stan and you don't hear from him for a month? I hope this doesn't happen, but it can. AND if it does, he needs to know that you can handle things at home. He HAS to know this in order to be able to focus all his attention on his mission. That is why ARMY WIFE (GIRLFRIEND) IS THE HARDEST JOB IN THE ARMY!!
