    Won't take long for him to loose the smile. He'll be better for it.

    Semper Fi... make sure he goes airwing and not grunt. He would look good in an F35.

    I'd be a little afraid of the "other activities" Russ. Steve might have you performing dance, in a tutu, for charity....which btw, I might fork over some good coin to view that. :)

    Somehow, I think you meant, "Salud!" (glass raised high!).


    Congrats to Skyler! And Grandpa, too! :)

    Do your very best to make sure if he decides on choosing to join my beloved Corps that he goes through college first and earns is 2nd Lieutenant “butter-bars” first. There are a lot more opportunities for him that way. If I were to do it all over again, I would have been an officer, and maybe even a gentleman. B)

    Congrats !!

    To see your son enlist and then a grandson start the journey has to be every military mans' life's' desire. At least 2 big ones of many maybe..

    Having a Daughter join has to be a proud act to cherish also !
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
