  1. I absolutely loved this post. Watching my son graduate from Army Basic Training this summer, brought me closer to my military roots and family as well. My dad retired from the military the year I was born, so I never experienced that lifestyle. But it was apparently in my blood because now I have passed that onto my oldest son. He also had the chance to participate in the Baton Death March race this past year in Arizona. Carrying a 50 pound ruck sack and marching for 26 miles, he had pinned to his chest the name of his great uncle Leroy Plubell, who served our country and died in the Philippines after enduring the Baton Death March. It was a very special experience. And now you’ve inspired me to want to write about it!
