In the Army???

Is it hard to believe I have one that is considering a military career?  For those that don't know, I grew up a military brat.  Yep, one of those people.  My dad was in the Marine Corps so Army in the title is probably not the best thing for me to do.   LOL.  Those who understand military competitions know what I mean by that.  Anyhow, I have one teen that decided to join ROTC this year.  Not only that, but did it on their own accord and said they were doing it b/c they knew they needed discipline.  Geez, not that mom and dad haven't been saying that all along. But, still nice they can come to that conclusion on their own.  Anyhow, very proud of this decision and do believe it has been a positive experience.  And who is it you ask?

It's Yana.  Yes, Yana.  Our stoic Russian.  Never thought a few years back we'd ever get to this point.  But, here we are.

Yana in a warrior pose. LOL.  She not only joined ROTC, but a thing called Raiders which is physically demanding.  They do competitions and placed 2nd this past Saturday.  So, Yana is thinking about doing this as a possible career option in the future.  Dont' know if it will come to fruition but do know it's not a bad idea.  I'll let you know for sure.  Quite the change from a few years ago when the only job she ever considered was super model.  This suits her well.  Just wanted to share some of the progress.
