    The youngest boy graduated last night his class had 32 kids that graduated. The amazing thing is there was $20,000 divided up in scholarships among the 32. all from local trust left from years gone by and given every year. That is amazing not many small towns can claim that

    Congratulations! There is no limit to his success in or out of the military. Just the Peter Principle. The Navy is growing in importance lately. :)

    Neat that this thread came up. We had both our sons home from the Marine Corps this weekend. The youngest just got home from japan after being forward deployed with the 31st MEU for 6 months in the pacific babysiting Kim Jong. He will be here until the 15th then goes back to San Deigo The oldest ships out to okinawa from Merimar in August.
