    Proud of my Son

    My son graduated Navy boot camp this weekend. His division, as a group, scored higher than any other division, in the history of Great Lakes Naval Academy. They also made the Navy Hall Of Fame.

    We are truly proud of him. It is amazing the change he has gone thru in 9 weeks. Now, he starts "A" school training. He is going into medical. Lol, he wants to be first in his class, because he gets to pick where his first assignment will be...East or West coast.

    Good deal! I remember my time there. I was a lucky squid, and ended up in a "Special division" comprised of rifle team, drill team, etc. I served in the Color Guard, carrying that danged heavy double quilted Great Lakes flag. On a windy day, it got interesting. Like getting smacked with a towel in the face. Ahh, the memories.

    I tried to steer my son towards the Navy, but he's a Marine (9 months left!).

    Be sure and thank him for us. You have reason to be proud.
