Inspirational ‘Get Off Your Ass’ Quotes
My son Kevin is now in his 5th week of military basic training. They call it ‘Beast Week’ — it is supposedly the most challenging week.
When I went through basic training (Army, July 1974 — hotter than hell!) every week seemed challenging to me … but then, I have always felt challenged.
Kevin will do well. He is smart, smart, smart … but not to be confused with the Ever Ready Bunny!
BEAST WEEK inspirational quotes that I sent to my son.
