    Proud of our 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.

    Congratulations on your son's achievement. I suspect it reflects his upbringing.

    Thank him for his service. We all appreciate it.

    Congratulations. He's pointed in the right direction. It's good to see some fine examples of what a young person can do with their life.

    Congrats to your Son and thank him for serving and to you for his service.

    I have heard it said the only thing harder than being a soldier (sailor in this case) is loving one.
