Proud Father

Received word today my youngest is doing well in his Combat Medic 68W training. One requirement is passing the National Registry Emergency Medical Technician - B NREMPT-B testing which he passed this week.

My first born is Autistic. He recently passed his Washington State Food Handlers permit. This is, for him, a major achievement that he has been working on for two years.

Please excuse me while I puff up my chest and grin ear to ear.

Congrats! These days its nice to hear some good news. The only thing you get out of joining the service is what you make of it. I have 3 friends that joined and 2 did there term and didnt do any thing with the free school. The other one is now a nuclear scientist, with a 200,000 a year job. He will have a job with the army forever.

Im proud of your boy as well.

I have to agree with Old NFO. You done good! And as I've said before, if you wouldn't have raised him to be so wonderful, you wouldn't have to listen to me go on & on & on & on about how much I love him!!! LOL

There were times he was fortunate that he lived! He was smart enough to marry a woman with all her #@%^ in one duffel bag.

I must admit that I am VERY PROUD of both of my nephews and just a little bit of their father. His middle son is also doing well with his life & its ups and downs. It just shows what love & perserverance can accomplish.
