I know I'm am not alone in my appreciation for Christcorp's excellent contribution to this forum. He helped my son during the application process as he is helping the class of 2014 these days. My son is less than a week away from Acceptance Day and he is really bummed out. He doesn't feel like he belongs there. I've tried to tell him: "don't question in the dark what God revealed in the light", but alas it bounces off him like the weak cliche that it is. He had pink-eye/flu/pneumonia and is still on light duty, complete with the blue sash (we saw pictures of him dated 7/30). I'm afraid he has experienced all of the BCT torture and missed out on the team building activities due to his illness. In fact, I have no idea what he's going through since I've never served in the military. I was hoping to get some encouraging words from someone who has been there done that (hint: Christcorp). I would like to copy such a statement and send it in a letter that he would get on or before A-Day. Thanks.
