Boot Camp!

On May 10, I participated in the 1-43 ADA Spouse Boot Camp. No, it’s not as tough as it sounds. After all, we did it in half a day. See, Cavalry spouses get to do a simplified version of a Spur Ride . They spend a day doing obstacles and teamwork drills and earn their “pink spurs.” (This horrifies, me, BTW.
