    My Son is in the Army!!!

    My son just started basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. They have a facebook page and while I was going through all the pictures they had of the 1,100 new recruits that just arrived, I stumbled across this picture. That's my son getting "introduced" to his Drill Sergeant on his first day of basic. Priceless!!!

    I remember that day (Air Force). I can laugh about it now.

    Best wishes for your son, tell him we appreciate him.

    Start planning now he will have a family weekend you can check him out for the weekend all my son wanted to do was eat and talk to his girlfriend on the phone.
    My son did the one unit station training at Fort Benning GA. Basic, infantry, advanced infantry, airborne, Ranger. so I made multiple trips to Benning on his Airborne graduation I watched his graduation jump very cool.
    I wish him good luck and send him a phone card to call you on.

    I did my basic at Fort Jackson. Interesting place. We had to shovel coal all night into the barracks furnace to stay warm.

    Maybe things have changed since 1966.

    My best to your son.

    That is a priceless photo, absolutely to be cherished and drug out in the future and shown at the most embarrassing of times...wedding, birthday, whatever.

    That is awesome, very proud of him and you... If he is anything like you, we are very lucky to have him serving for us.

    Definitely save that photo. You'll post it proudly at his retirement party if he makes a career of it.
