Boot Camp Graduation - Congratulations!

On November 13th, 2007 (see post of that date), oldest grandson Matt left town to be sworn into the Air Force. For the last six weeks he has been "enjoying" Basic Training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Today is Graduation Day and a crowd of proud relations made the trek to Texas to cheer him on. Brisk and windy, it was an otherwise perfect day and the ceremonies went off flawlessly.

After reuniting with the new Airman, all concerned began winding down from the stresses of the event. Following a few misfires, everyone got comfortably relaxed for the weekend and survived without damage.
As for Marian and I, we are enormously proud of this fine young American and the nearly eight hundred others who graduated alongside. It is thanks to all unsung Heroes such as these that we continue enjoy life in this wonderful country.

Well done Matt!
