My son is one of them. He enlisted in the Army Reserve and will report to Ft. Sill on January 9th for basic training. He’s both looking forward to it and a little scared. That’s to be expected, but I know he will do well. Since we only live a short drive from Ft. Sill my wife and I will attend his graduation parade. It will be easy to spot me in the stands, I’ll be the Dad with no buttons on his shirt!!
Be sure to hang your Blue Star Flag in the Window and put magnetic Blue Star Flags on your vehicles. http://bluestarmothers.org/
Congratulations and Thank You to you and your son.
They had a DVD produced about their basic training cycle. It was rather cute and brought back a lot of memories. The CS chamber still gets the snot and eyes flowing, red faces and gagging. :-) , Ahh, remembering the good ol’ days.
