What a wonderful weekend Jim and I had going to John's graduation! There were 893 recruits that graduated! John is now officially Seaman King. The first thing he noticed after we got to talk with him was that we were the first people to call him by his first name in over 7 weeks.
We noticed some changes in him. He took what his superiors said very seriously. Deep down inside, however, he is the same kid - just better :)
The good news is that he will be home for Christmas.
Good Job Sailor!
