    Shake his hand before he leaves for boot - then shake his hand the first time he returns on leave. You will notice a difference.

    You have every right to be a proud man, and so does he.

    What is his job (rate)?

    And well you should be . . . any young man or woman
    who joins the military deserves a certain amount of
    pride and respect in my own opinion.

    Congrats...You should be proud of your son!

    Quote from Gunny Sargeant Tom Highway:

    Well, well, well, well. I'm here to tell you that life as you knew it has ended. You all may as well go into town tonight. You may as well laugh and make fools out of yourselves. Rub your pathetic little peckers against your honies or stick it in a knothole in the fence but whatever it is, get rid of it. Because at 0600 tomorrow your ass is mine.
