Serving his Country

Yesterday, grandchild #1 stopped by with his mom and dad on his way to Fort Benjamin Harrison, in Indianapolis. No, he isn't standing on a box - at 6' 6" and 240# he hasn't needed a box since 7th grade to look his folks in the eye.
Anyway, following five years in the workforce, Matt felt he would like to do something more fulfilling and began looking at the armed services, finally settling on the Air Force. After various interviews and assessments, the USAF Security Police turned out to be a great fit and the rest is just now becoming history.
This morning, at 11:00 am, Matt was sworn in and promptly whisked away to San Antonio and the Security Police boot camp at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.
We're proud of you Matt, along with the thousands of other selfless and patriotic youngsters of this country, who have the courage to commit themselves to ensuring our future. Good fortune to you and your fellow newbies!

Don and I know how proud you must be of your grandson! We had two daughters in the Air Force! Our son-in-law was with Security Forces in the Air Force as well! I, personally am so very proud of the many young men and women willing to serve our country to provide us with the many, many freedoms we take for granted on a daily basis!
