Congratulations U.S. Army Ranger-Justin De'Leon
Our family had quite the celebration here in Colorado last weekend, and what a Mother's Day for my sister, Joanne. Her son, my nephew, Justin De'Leon earned the U.S. Army Ranger tab after successfully completing the Ranger course. The U. S. Army Ranger School is an extremely intense 61-day combat leadership course. It has been called the "toughest combat course in the world"and "is the most physically and mentally demanding leadership school the Army has to offer". Two of my siblings live in Colorado and two of my sisters and one of my brothers came out from Wisconsin to join in the celebration, so 6 out of the 7 of us were together (which doesn't happen often). Joanne and her husband Tim, Justin's dad, had a really nice BBQ on Mother's Day in Justin's honor with family and their close friends. I couldn't pass this occasion without making Justin a zentangle inspired art piece.
But wait, that's not all!!! The next day, Justin got engaged to his high school sweetheart, Julie. Congratulations, Justin and Julie!
As you head to Germany next week, and then are deployed to Afghanistan, know that you will be in all our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and keep you safe. We are all so proud of you!
