    Navy bootcamp graduation!

    My twin sons graduated Friday from Navy bootcamp! Turned out awesome and I cannot believe my heart could get any fuller than it already was! What a sight to see all these wonderful sailors in their best and marching proudly. They are in Pensacola right now for A school. Just had to share with you all!

    Congrats to you and to them. Looks like one of them out-shot the other one, future sibling rivalry?

    You have no idea. Since we shoot so much though they are bummed they didn't get expert. But most did not even qualify and UNQ according to my Marine husband is unacceptable!

    Thank you all for your comments and service.

    Well, that deserves a double thumbs up! (one for each of 'em)

    Congrats, buddy! They're men of the world now! I wish them great luck during their time in the Navy. I know you're very proud.

    Go Navy! I remember shooting in boot camp. We had to shoot ooooold 1911s converted to shoot .22LR. They were so clunky and shot out it wasn't funny. I don't think mine had been cleaned in 100 years. The pistols were so bad they wouldn't even let us try to shoot for score. I had to qualify later with a Beretta.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
