and Navy.

A little story. I was buying ribs in front of Albertson's yesterday, and there was a slip of a girl hanging around the grill--or maybe the griller. I was wearing a ball cap with wings (I live in the past a lot), and she remarked "Navy". I told her I was surprised that she recognized them, not many do; but, she said yes, I was Army and my Dad was Navy. Asked her what her MOS (or Army equivalent) was and she replied "combat medic". Two deployments to Iraq, one to Afghanistan, and another tour to Korea. Our heroes clearly come in all shapes, and sizes. (and she was clearly older than I thought, but young folks all look alike to me now.)

Some don't know this but my 24 year old son is leaving for the Navy in about a month and a half. He is proud we are beside our selves but proud as well.

The USMC is heard from.

Jeff, don't stress. The Navy will take care of him, and provide opportunities in many directions.

The only time I recall seeing tears in my Dad's eyes was when he put me on the train to go on active duty. My Mother died the year before, when he was 45 years old, so on the scale of traumatic experiences this must have been huge. (He was a WWII Navy vet). Twenty years later he noted that his seemingly directionless son had made a good choice. But, I had a direction, and anything that did not lead to that was superfluous. Most people simply did not relate to the fact that I wanted to get paid for flying the Navy's airplanes; and would accept some turbulence for the opportunity. Not only did the USN come through on that bargain, they sent me back to get educated in return for a reasonable 20 year commitment. Not the same as getting smarter, of course.

Fair winds, and following seas to your son, and to his parents as well.

That's good news Jeff.

My youngest boy went the Navy route and did him well.

Both of you are proud of him I'm sure Jeff. My brother has been in the Navy for a long time and it's been a great experience for him.

Sorry for the late response but a huge THANK YOU to all who served. I did not serve (had to go to work to help my parents) but my dad (rest his soul) served in the Air Force during the Korean War.

We appreciate the USA and our liberty!
