    Thanks to all! He's going into IT, hoping for assignment in the new Cyber Fleet. Whatever he'll be called is anyone's guess. I know he's hoping to push himself for a truncated stint in P'cola. He's E-3 now so I guess E-4 is next.

    That's great! Didn't we tell you it would be worth the trip to see him graduate? What's his job going to be?

    Congrats.
    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.

    Hitler once said, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerers who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”

    Congrats! My #1 son graduated from the Army basic on March 18. We had a great time in Missouri but did not get to spend much time with my son due to his having to move to a different location on base. He was put in a holding company until April 19, when he will finally attend AIT. I took my Inlaws along with us and we toured around Mo. a bit while we were there.

    We were given about a hour and a half on base with him. It was long enough to eat lunch and go to a PX that had a Starbucks. He wanted a cup of good coffee and a big cookie after having to go without while in basic. We did get about a weeks notice as to what was happening, so we had time to plan out places to go see. My wife still had a hard time watching all the others with families run around town and our motel.

    Sooner - he's IT - hoping to earn a spot in the new Cyber Fleet.

    Trapper - I understand how your wife feels. It sucks. I had to check my emotions for some of my son's shipmates who had nobody in the audience. I would have kicked myself for not going. I understand expenses, but.... Is there any chance y'all can go to AIT's finale?
