  • Back from the dead?

    Hello!
    No, I didn't croak, Just took a break from the internet to work on my book, Oh, and I got a job working for the Federal Government.

    But I have other news:

    As many of my friends (those who remember me.) on here may recall, both of my boys were in the USAF...Well, my one and only daughter has, at the age of 27, JOINED THE UNITED STATES NAVY!

    Yup, she's an E3, she is training as a sonar operator, and starts Petty Officer Indoc this week.

    That's all the kids I have, so this will be the last such announcement.

    Carry on.

          I would think that it would be beyond proud. I am sure they have had a fatherly guiding influence.

            Thanks.

            Surprisingly, She wasn't sure how Mom & Dad would react. She was surprised to learn that I always wanted her to join. I told her I didn't want to unduly influence her. Mom was a little hesitant, but she is mighty proud now! My father-in-law was Navy and all three of my wife's brothers joined the ANG. (although one had to leave during basic due to a genetic knee defect.)

            Interestingly enough; I'm almost the only conservative in my family and my kids are the ONLY ones, of all the cousins (out of 19) that joined. None of the cousins on the wife's side are old enough yet.

            When my kids were little I read them sections of "The Fleet The God's Forgot" and "Yeager" and "The Ship That Would Not Die" and others.

            I now work for the Veterans Administration at a VA hospital, (I'm a Respiratory Therapist) where I get to serve these men and women every day. I think I've found my calling.

              Good stuff! Best of luck for your daughter, and glad to see you back!
              Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

                As a father of service-kids myself, I understand your pride! To give back to our nation, to stand tall and proud and be able to say "I served!" is a great thing.
