Mailed blog – written by Mom Plamann
10 March 11
Well, I haven’t blogged since I started getting GI Jules mailed blogs to post. Her writings are so well done – I felt as though her writings helped us all visualize her daily tasks. I also could feel her emotions – high’s and lows. As a parent, I was really comforted to know she knew where to find here strength – through prayer and faith that the Lord is continually with her, guiding her through her days.
I can’t tell you how anxious I am to see her on Wednesday, March 16 “Family Day” and then we will see her graduate on Thursday morning – March 17. She has mentioned how worried we might not recognize her! apparently she is skinny and buff – and all I know is I will recognize her and I can’t wait to hug her!
We hope to leave Fort Jackson (S. Carolina) on Thursday and drive Julian to Minnesota (it’s about a 16 hour drive) – she will have a very small window to get to MN and then to report for duty in Fort Bragg’s (Atlanta, Georgia) by Monday, March 27.
Thanks everyone for writing her. Thank you for posting your comments on the blogs. Your words meant everything to her.
Well, sometimes you just gotta say it….Am I proud of her?….HELL YES!
Shoutin Out a Big “HOYAH” to GI JULES!

Proud you should be! I am amazed at her dedication and perseverance. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it by posting Julian’s blogs. God’s blessings on your travels. What a sweet reunion it will be! Give her a big Core family hug! Continued prayers as she continues her service in Atlanta. So thankful that she is willing to serve and protect our country. Our family is truly grateful. May God continue to use Julian’s gifts for His glory. Truly amazing!
Never did get that letter written Jules!! Sorry about that. It has been quite the ride for you! Thanks again for sharing all of your thoughts and your day-to-day activities. Congratulations on your upcoming graduation!! The 16th is Eli’s 3rd birthday… but we’ll be sure to do a little victory dance for you too. 🙂
