Hi, Phillip, and (I assume) Vicki.

I was bummed to hear about their elimination process. Seems shortsighted and makes them lose out on committed, dedicated people like you, Phillip. I had a similar experience when I went through jumpmaster training in the 101st Airborne Division. (I missed one minor pre-set error and had to take the course again. In my case that wasn’t bad, as I really enjoyed the training and it wasn’t nearly as grueling as what you went through.)

Regarding shin splints: I suffered through them during the endless running we had to do when I was in Jump School and Ranger Training. Here is what worked for me: (1) sit on the edge of a table with your feet dangling off the table at the knee joint. Dangle an object (bucket) by the handle draped over your toes. Place a weighted object into the bucket (rocks?) and do toe raises a couple of times a day. (2) Get a good orthotic insert to provide support for your arch. Maybe this will help you, too.

Best of luck. I’m pulling for you. Perhaps it will be easier this time. I truly admire your dedication and commitment. You’re a credit to young men everywhere.

Just hearing one of your names makes me take a deep cleansing breath and remind myself how lucky I am to know you. You are all an inspiration, individually but more importantly as a ‘team’. What an honor that I have got to be a small part of your lives!

Sending love, warm thoughts, and happiness your way all ways……..

Hi Vicki – I saw your family story on the 5 o’clock news tonight. I admire your strength and courage in writing this book – a positive ending to painful and frightening ordeal. My heart breaks for all that Kevin, you and the rest of the family had to endure for so long. He looks great in his photos and looked and sounded great on tonight’s news broadcast. I wish all of you the best – Kate Dougherty
