Now it's Three Weeks in Hell
on November 19, 2011
My son just called to let me know that he successfully completed SFAS (which now lasts three weeks instead of two weeks). He also suggested that I watch this video, because he said it's "pretty accurate" about what he's just been through. The training is even tougher now, and that's as it should be. Of his initial cadre of 330, only 130 were selected. He is a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan (sergeant in the Army) and I'm really proud of him. Here's a warning, though, for all the moms and dads out there: if your son is going to SFAS, watch this video AFTERWARDS. His three weeks in hell are also your three weeks in hell... wondering, hoping, praying, and worrying. I'm so glad that he was wise enough not to mention it to me beforehand! Excellent video.
