Deven's graduation from MCRD: Day 2

Friday was Deven's official gradation.  We've been anticipating this day for months.  Even my mom and Alex went.  It was bitterly cold, but amazing.  However, 6 of the young soldiers passed out due to locking their knees.  It was really sad to see, since after passing out, they missed the remaining of the graduation.  But all in all, the graduation was so neat to see, especially since Deven stood right in front of us for part of the time.
