Welcome to ILE Class 12-001 at beautiful Fort Belvoir, Virginia. It is home for the next fifteen weeks. Through the mountains, a foot of snow, closed highways, and much of it at ten MPH, I finally made it. It is not good to be away from home for 15 weeks, but being selected for Resident ILE is an opportunity not to be taken for granted.
Day One- signing in, inventorying books, and checking into lodging all accomplished. Meeting my classmates and those who will be my peers in the future will occur shortly.
