Keoni here again, hope Santa was generous to all of you this past year and
that everyones New Year past safely.
Anyway, Pua graduated today from Basic Training and will be headed to Tech
School in Shepard AFB probably on Sunday. She'll give me her new address
when she gets there and I will send it out to all of you. She wanted to
thank all of you who found the time to send a letter or Christmas card. She
read them over and over again :)
I talked to her today and she was very excited to inform me that she made
"Honor Grad!" I believe this is earned by those who exceled on all their
tests during Basic. She also earned a top honor for her PRT (Physical
Readiness Training). Out of all 540 graduates she was among the top 10%
when it came to the running, pushups, pullups, and situp stuff. This is not
only for the females, this includes ALL graduates! She was chosen to run in
front of all the graduates, I think she was out in front leading them with
the flag and everything.
So, Basic Training was a huge success for her. I'm very proud of what she's
acomplished so far. She set her sites for the top and fought all the way
till she achieved her goal. Huge motivational boost going into Tech School.
Again, as soon as she gets me her new address, all of you will have it too.
She might actually be able to gain access to her email at that point and
maybe these emails will be coming directly from her by then. I don't know.
I'll keep you informed. Keep writing though, like I said before, it keeps
