Yesterday, I got a letter from Col Trace P. Deneke USMCR (RET). It was the letter I’ve been waiting for anxiously.
It read, ” Dear Andrew, Congratulations on being selected for duty as an Eagle for the 2013 Encampment!….Your selection is significant, and undoubtedly represents a precursor for future positive reviews as it applies to your character.”
I did it!
I became an Eagle for the Devil Pup program. I report to Camp Pendelton on July 15 and will be there for 13 days. I know this will be amazing leadership training experience for me.
My summer is now officially book for 2013.
I leave for The Naval Academy Summer Seminar program on June 15 to June 21.
Then jump on plane from Annapolis, Maryland and fly to California to be on bus to Sacramento to attend the 76 Session of the American Legion Boys State program in Sacramento, California from June 22 to June 28.
Then two weeks later I leave for Camp Pendlton for the Devil Pup program.
Now it’s time to get in even better shape to get ready for summer!
Below are some pictures of graduation last summer at Devil Pups and my official selection letter for Devil Pup Eagle Program for Summer 2013, 2nd Encampment.
