She's Still Doing Fine

Our daughter called again this afternoon. Her platoon learned how to dissemble an M16 this week; they will start Basic Rifle Marksmanship next week.

She is one of the fastest women in her company; she and another woman are the only two who can maintain the pace while running with the male recruits. The company is comprised of almost 200 persons and about 60% are male.

She has a problem keeping cadence in drill. At 5'2" her legs are so short that she has to take giant steps to keep up.
