Congrats to your youngest!
I did four years USAF - Avionics Tech at Tyndall AFB, Florida - 115 miles from home! Would have reupped but they threatened to keep me at Tyndall even though I was out for eight months! Said my job was 'critical'.... well, the three aircraft I was trained to work on (F-101 Voodoo and F-106 Delta Dart interceptors and the T-33A trainer) were all older than I, and were being taken out of service. Newer and more advanced birds coming online. And I wanted to travel. Panama City Beach gets boring after a few years.
So I reupped into the USN, and saw a lot of the world in six years as an Electronic Tech on an ASW Frigate (small ship). I like to tell folks I was paid to do three years of Caribean Cruises!

I missed Vietnam by a couple years, and got out before the next round of serious 'war games'. Sometimes I miss it. But then I come to my senses - there were too many things I wanted to do that just weren't possible or easy while in the military. But I did enjoy it.

Tell him to keep a good camera handy!

Joshua read all of your posts and appreciates them.
He did get after me however on I said he had a 26" waist. It is 32". "Told me no guy has a 26" waist." All I know is the young man is thin and great shape.

When I graduated BMT I had a 32" waist. Don't think I will see that again any time soon.

Well. your child has my respect and admeration.. And for the record I approve of the branch of service he choose.

HAD I been declared "Fit for duty" It would have been in the air force but alas.. That was not to be (I wanted to be in the air force) Had to settle for becoming a police dispatcher instead.
Home is where I park it!

Families like yours are very admirable. Keep those dress whites shining and wear them with pride.

The one thing I pray for is another family member does not have to be repatriated along the highway of heroes. When deployed I always pray for a safe return and success. Never take liberties for granted. The world could be a much worse place
