To the wild blue yonder.......
My browned eyed baby had grown up in the blink of an eye
On Tuesday evening he flew to Lackland Air Force Base for Boot Camp, which is 8 1/2 weeks long.
Though I still can't figure out how two US Navy Sailors had a son who joined the Air Force!
He did give us a few clues along the way that he was not going to join the Navy.
The first time I heard about it was a few days after the multiple attacks on September 11, 2001.
Our Flying Squid was interviewed by a reporter from the Payson Roundup Newspaper and he was asked how he felt about assault on the World Trade Center.
He said it was horrible and that he wanted to join the Air Force and help keep America safe from bad people.
His time has come and it is very bitter sweet.
TBC and I miss him terribly but we shall see him in 8 1/2 weeks! I'm so very proud!
