Congrats Charlie Co. you are almost there! Just a few more days until you get that Marine hug!

Week 11
Confidence Chamber
Field Refresher
Crucible - http://marinefamilynetwork.com/group/mcrdsd1/forum/topics/crucible
Super Sick-call (this is after the Crucible and to check Marine’s of any issues)

Marine Week - week 12: Marching and drilling for Family Day and Graduation.
Clearing out and cleaning up the barracks!

Do double check with your MARINE what time they have to report back to the barracks on Family Day and to leave them 15 minutes early to go back. As precious as that time is with them, being late will result in them not graduating and leaving with you on Friday.

The Meaning of "Crucible"

A Dad’s Crucible Prayer.

I Am THERE, WITH YOU

I am There, with You
In the Dust, and The Fray;
I am there with YOU, My Child,
As I am Each and Every Day.

A Moms Crucible Prayer.

Did You Know When you awoke this morning to begin the crucible

Did you know I walked every step with you that was possible?

When you humped all those miles over rough terrain,

Did you know I was by your side again?

A Mother's Prayer

As you awake this Thursday morning with the crucible ahead,

Your dad and I will wake up too, and kneel beside our bed.

You’ll start your day with guns and gear, and be ready for the worst,

But we’re praying that God’s armor is the one you’ll put on first.
