Decided to drop in, started going through all the forum posts, mainly IC stuff, since my last visit. Whew, that was a lot of reading. Well, more like 'skimming' than reading. I think I'm caught up on events since my last visit months ago. How do you folks generate so much content so quickly? It takes my hours just to create and compose a 'short' IC post.

Howdy,

I just got back from my grandson's graduation from boot camp. He graduated with Honors. That means he was in the top 10% of his class. There were 816 graduates in the class. He was 2 points behind the top graduate, and second in the class overall. He was promoted to Airman 1st class upon graduating.

He's the one in the center of the picture. I took this the day after he graduated, at the end of the "parade".

Congratulations to you and your boy! With that rank is he thinking of going career? Starting Airman 1st class straight out of boot camp he could advance pretty well with some dedication.

Congrats, that's amazing!

You either die the hero or live long enough to see yourself become the half-drow dragonblooded sorcerer raised in Celestia with a mechanical mithril arm and scimitars for hands.



Calm down boys, mommy's here.

Yes, he's thinking at least 20 years. He's headed off to Biloxi Mississippi for 8 more months of training in cyber security. His long term goal is fighter pilot, so he's going to apply to the Air Force Academy. If that doesn't work out then he'll go with OTS and try to approach it from that direction. Even if he doesn't make it as a pilot, he's planning on becoming an officer and he'll have cyber security as a career.

Thanks everyone, for the congratulations. It's appreciated. :^)
