After the Zone Conference we took the Putnams, who are the Military Relations Couple at Fort Jackson, up to Fort Gordon and showed them around. They really enjoyed seeing the Post. They said it was much nicer than Fort Jackson. They said that on average they have around 10,000 soldiers in Basic Training at any given time. I believe there is 5 Basic Training bases and I have no idea if they are all the same size in terms of numbers, but you can see there are a lot of soldiers being trained every 2 months or so.
Here are some photos from our Zone Conference:

We had a shooting contest, Higher Sister Gowans, she did make her 3rd and last attempt!
Elder Gowans made his 3rd and last attempt too, but then went on to win the contest! Can you believe it?
My Cousin, Sister Gardner
Can you tell by her form that she played High School basket ball?
We had a lot of fun!
