    Son Enlisted

    My son Zac just enlisted in the Army.
    And I could not be prouder (is that right?) of him.

    He's 20yr old and says he has to much freedom not to give back to what help us have all that freedom.

    He leaves on the 29th for Fort Knox.

    Guess that makes me an Army Dad.

    Go Zac.

    Congratulations. Now I guess we have to wish you best of luck. I think it might be harder on family sometimes.

    Go Zac.

    First and foremost, congrats!

    As an English Teacher, you are more than correct to say "prouder".

    Congratulations! It's good to see those younger folks still willing to sacrifice for our nation. Now, if he'd only enlisted in the Navy!!!
