I would like to announce that my youngest son (22) is now an official Army Soldier. He graduated from Fort Jackson, South Carolina earlier today. I couldn't be prouder.

He's a kid who has always been in trouble in school and fired from every job he ever had. I did not expect the Army to be his thing, but.....it is. He was named platoon leader during basic. He will ship off to Virginia for AIT tomorrow. Gonna be a Black Hawk Helicopter mechanic!! Hooah!
