Survivor PC down to 35 (post dated for 10-19)

Survivor PC now down to 35.

Today got news of a Group 8 PCV going home for good.

That leaves 35 for Group 8. We lost one who never showed in Altanta back in June, another in Atlanta, 2 in Training and now a full blown PCV.

She had a hard training living situation and I remember her saying that when things don't start out to well they usually don't get better. She said that in like the 3rd week over here.

Plus, she had a boyfriend back there. Long Distance relationships espically this long in terms of time & distance just don't work, never try them.

I never actually heard from her, but saw her when she visited me at the car wash, she was not very enthusatic at all.

Rememeber I am very lucky I have a day job & live in city, almost every one else has to find their own in way in their rural community. I don't have the isolation that many others have.
