Thanks Kellen!

Dropping him off at his new base.

He's in the back row, third sailor in from the right!

This last weekend I was able to see Kellen, my little brother, graduate from the NAVY's basic training camp. It was one of the most inspiring events I have ever been to and something that I will never forget. He looked so handsome in his sailor uniform and was the same wonderful Kellen I grew up with. Being on the Naval base that day, I was able to get a glimpse of what Boot Camp is really like and after speaking with Kellen decided that excuses are not acceptable and you have to shrug a lot of things off and just keep going to be successful. What a great example he is of honor, courage and strength! After struggling through a workout with him and seeing what discipline he had, sure made me want to be a stronger person in all aspects of my life. Thank you Kellen for your great example! Thank you for serving our country, God bless!
