Re-Intro

Post by wazzle »

I have been a regular around here since November of 2004. I currently have a son who is a Ranger in 3rd Bat. I am here to reintroduce myself due to the news I received last week. My youngest son just signed papers and received an Option 40 contract and is headed to Benning for OSUT in January. I couldn't be more proud of both of my sons and would like to thank this group for all the support I have received over the years. This time around will be much easier (on us). I will post often to update his progress.

Thanks to all of you for your service.

The two brothers are together right now for Thanksgiving and believe me, there was some of that going on. Talk of making OSUT harder by talking to people he knows, etc. You can imagine what was going on, I'm sure. I tried to keep the shit from getting too deep.

Congratulations to you and your youngest son for his enlistment to become a Ranger. You have earned the right to doubly proud.
