He's in the Army Now

Posted by fallsfall on August 26, 2003, at 23:36:59

My 18 year old son left for Basic Training today. He'll spend 9 weeks in Georgia doing that, and then move to a different base in Georgia for his 20 week AIT (Advanced Individual Training). He's going into Satellite Communications. He's really excited about this, and has been since the first of the year. I think it is a good choice for him.

He has agreed not to volunteer for Combat duty. I'm really hoping that they will think that he is more valuable with a computer in his hands than with a gun.

I am proud of him. He is a very nice person, and will make a contribution to the world.

But, boy, this is different from dropping a kid off at college.
