Since I last sent you a picture of Kabar she has been promoted to PFC twice and busted to private twice for pooping on the sidewalk. I am glad to say that as of today she has progressed from private to PFC, and finally to lance corporal. Her MOS is 9999 (useless dog with a bad attitude). The question of a good conduct medal is still up in the air. Kabar's greatest ambition in the Corps is to be eventually assigned as sergeant of the guard at a dog food factory.
Galactic Central (this old Marine's long-suffering wife) takes a slightly less tolerant attitude toward Kabar, but she's coming around as Kabar gets older (four this December) and ever so slightly better behaved.
Best regards and Semper Fi.
