  • Well, It Started

    My son started high school, and today the Army recruiter was there. He brought home every flyer and mentioned...."ya know mom, you can sign up at 17 with parent's permission."

    He's been set on the Army for a while (despite my hints about "the few, the proud, the Marines) and can't wait to do the "Army Experience" at the Miramar Air show this year (he was too young last year).

    **sniffles**

    I'm so proud of my boy!

          At the Offutt AFB show in Omaha this summer the line to get through the Army Experience was about 2 blocks long. I did not make it.

            I can understand your desire for your son to be a Marine. I began my career in the Air Force. I spent four years on active duty (including one deployment to Iraq). When I separated my parents thought I was nuts for wanting to go into the Army National Guard. They told me to go Air Guard. I've been in the Army Guard for a little over two years now and have loved every minute of it. Congratulations on raising a boy with enough courage and conviction to serve our Country with distinction (no matter how he does it). My hat is off to you!

                2nd that...

                I respect every branch, but generally the quality of life is better in the Air Force.

                Still some people would hate the Air Force and love the Army and that's cool too.

                  I'd better qualify this by saying he's 13...so we have a few years before it's official...but it's been his plan since he was 7.

                  Did I also mention he's working on making Eagle Scout?

                  I'll quit bragging now.

                    Take it from one Eagle Scout, don't stop bragging. That's a huge accomplishment and you have every right to be proud of him for it. Keep up the good work. Maybe you should parent some of the other kids around here and we wouldn't have so much to do!

                          Sounds like me... tell him to slow it down a little, and think more about it. I did and I don't think I'll be joining.

                            Willow, sounds like a good kid.

                            You've done a great job.

                            Take a bow!

                            Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.
