Why is the man on the right smiling? Because he's completed all his training requirements and now is a bottled in bond newly minted combat medic.

the one on the right with the loopy grin is my son.

HAH!! I SO remember that mud pit this spring!! Only we had more mud than water at the time. Looks like he's finishing up with his STX lanes and then off to FTX at Camp Bullis. Tell him have fun at FTX and make sure he gets a gask mask that works!  vomit  Tell him congrats, welcome to the best MOS in the Army!!!

BTW, what company was he in?

Congratulations to your son and yourself!  bigthumbsup  Even if I don't share his apparent fascination with mud, filth and the military!  duck 

BTW... Is it just me or does the guy in the middle look alarmingly like Dubya?  Smile

We're a family of late bloomers anyway-I did not get my law degree until I was 48.

Impressive!  bigthumbsup

So I send one of those "anyone home?' messages and surprise surprise I get a return, he's in Santa Fe, New Mexico and then on to San Antonio for medic training which it now seems is a turning point in his life.

Congratulations, that's great news. I can personally attest what it's like to reach a turning point in your life. Last fall I got fed up with who I was an since then I've lost 145 pounds, raised my GPA 0.5 points overall, and improved tremendously as a musician. It's such a fantastic thing to see someone turn around like that.

One of my aunts graduated from Ole Miss Law School at 44. It's takes a lot of guts to do stuff like that.

Ditto. I figured if I was in right now, I'd want to be a corpsman in the Navy (alongside Marines) - John Bradley from Flags Of Our Fathers is largely the kind of serviceman I'd like to be in that role. Here's to your son fitting the same mold.
