Will graduated from basic training on September 25, 2002. He had a whole fan club who attended. Besides Grandmama and Granddaddy (pictured above with Will), Will's friend Samantha, brother Joey and sister Jennifer were there. Randy and I both got to go (of course), and Will's dad and stepmother Cindy were also able to go. Besides all of us, Uncle Lee, Aunt Ashley and Ryan were also there.
After the graduation ceremony (which had to be held inside due to weather), Will's dad, stepmother, Randy and I and the kids all went with Will to lunch. Then we came back to the building where graduation was held. There were some activities for the kids and they also had a canteen for snacks. We sat around and visited; Joey and Grandmama even got a card game going.
