    Smile Son Graduates from VMI

    I just wanted to share my pride. My son is graduating this weekend from the Virginia Military Institute. On Friday he is being commissioned into the Navy and starts flight school in mid June.

    In today's world, it is reassuring that people like my son, and about 150 of his fellow cadets, are being commissioned into the military.

    There really are good young people in our nation that still believe in Duty, Honor and Country.

    Congratulations! I'm sure I'm speaking for most if not all of us on dc, just like all military and LE, I appreciate your sons's dedication to our freedom.

    What an accomplishment, I hope he 'flies' through flight school...

    Congrats to your son. Know you and the family are extremely proud of him.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I have a very good friend who graduated from there...he was a football star and engineering major. He went on to work for Ford, then back to Medical School and is now an MD. They really churn out some very motivated leaders and fine young men. Congrats.
