Hello, my name is Ashley Ciccone. As you probably know me from my father signing "ASHLEY'S DAD." I came in this program with a lot on my mind. Hardcore was TOUGH, but i thought everyday that as a person myself has too do this for myself. Doing PT everyday, standing at the position of attention without moving. Now, on the first pass I have accomplished so much in 7 weeks.
Most people look at me and ask why is she here? Well as a changed person almost I am ready to reveal that with all you. i realize what I have done wrong. I stoled from the people I love the most, I constantly lied, & I even CHEATED! It was all wrong & it had to stop. It was like i knew what I was doing but didnt care.
As today Sept. 1st I am on pass! My encouraging parents forgave me & never gave up on me. IT MEANS SOOO MUCH! LEtters, the phone calls, & seeing the today.... WOW! Even if a card i recieved even said I LOVE YOU it meant so much. The phone calls are short but to hear my parents voice on the phone is what keeps me exceling to my highest limit. THEY ARE MY ENERGY IN ME!!!
Now for the good part, I have changed in so many way. I came home respecting my parents in a way I never thought they ever imagine. I stopped my old habits, removed my old habits, & by choice I am removing bad influences from my life.
By choice thou, this is the best experience I have ever been thou in my entire life.I am not finished yet, but I promise you that, there is a lot more to come along my way.
advice to parents from a cadet:
WE LOVE LETTERS, WITH NOTHING NEGATIVE,
YOU ARE OUR ENERGY & I KNOW WITHOUT MY DADDY I PROBABLY WOULD BE GONE
dad & mom THANK YOU it means sooo much to have you there \
I AM HUNGRY
