This morning my youngest son left to give the next six years to Uncle Sam in the U.S.N.
He will be going to boot came at Great Lakes like his grandfather and uncle before him.
Then he will be in Charleston South Carolina for two years of school as a nuclear engineer. Free education the way it should be.
You serve you get perks.
He signed up last April and this past year was for his security clearance to be completed. I guess my participation here didnt effect that at all.
His recruiter said we were all looked at.
He is twenty three years old. Not a kid so I am certain he will be very successful. After school he will do service on a nuclear sub. I think he
said they do time on and off the water.
My brother never saw a ship during his whole enlistment. He was at a Naval Air station in Pensacola Florida.
My son will be on or under the water for sure. He could get an aircraft carrier or a sub.
So fellow ATSers wish him luck.
A friend of mine, who barely graduated high school, joined the squids and wound up as a nuke. Turned that into an outstanding career in uniform and
then a second outstanding career out of uniform. Great things are on the horizon for him so long as he’s willing to put in the work to get there!
We are very proud... the test he had to take to get into their nuclear program is very hard. They told us that only a small percentage pass it. He
will have a great career when he gets out if he doesnt decide to make a career out of the Navy.
I know...my dad had a bad experience at a community pool when he was just a boy and he was afraid of the water. Wouldnt get in any deeper than his
waist. But Morgan knows how to swim. We had a pool when he was a baby and made sure he could swim. The YMCA has a great program for toddlers.
