Day 240 

 

The extra week of basic has molded some of the lesser troops into model soldiers. It has given Sgt. Major Miller the time he need to fix them. Plus it has given the military a chance to better organize the assault on Canson to secure it. Tomorrow all 23 of us will graduate from basic and will be headed to the front lines.
