The Soldier Boy!!!



There's a soldier in the house...

There's a soldier in the house...

If you see him point him out...

If you see him point him out...

Thought I'd post the basic training military picture of my lil' brother Da'Kari.

I talked to him about this photo the other day. I don't understand why he had to be looking all hardcore. He could of at least smiled. He said "The girls smile, not the men!"

Whatever... I can't get down with the lack of facial hair either. I guess they taught him how to shave. I asked him for his Drill Seargent's phone number. Maybe I could talk him into letting him keep his mustache (yeah right!).

I haven't seen him since June 29, but he'll be home for Christmas. I'll see him at graduation. And he has a short layover in Atlanta before he ships off to Maryland in mid November so we should be able to see each other for an hour or two at the airport before he ships out...

He seems to be all excited about his basic training, though. So good for him!

So Da'Kari, your Playstation 2 controller is still waiting for you! And I'll see ya when I see ya...

And boy, when you take your picture in your formal uniform?

Don't forget to smile!!

  4. There is a wondeful sense of pride that we feel when we see our beloved strong men in uniform. Considering the enormous fight to be able to serve, Black men in our Armed Forces garner the highest respect from me. God Bless your Brother.

  6. I can feel the pride oozing out of you (is THAT what that is?) : )

    I hope you enjoy your visit with him during the layover, and Christmas with him home should be a blast.
