May Self-Pic And Self Gloss For FDJ87

Thu May 20, 2010 1:33 am

It's been a couple months since we had a self-pic thread and also, this is my opportunity for a self-gloss. Sunday a week ago, I took the Oath of Office and commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the US Air Force (I also graduated from ERAU with a degree in Aerospace Engineering the next day). My mom administered the Oath of Office (my dad is standing in the background.)

I'd salute you sir, but they don't have a smiley for it! Way to go - you've certainly earned it. Just going on the way you post around here, you'll have a fine career ahead of you representing our country at its best.

Congrats Phil, awesome achievement. It bet it will feel a bit weird being saluted to know for the first time.

I don't remember if I've showed this one, but here is he comparing my large size to the even large size of Mr. Hibbert at Conseco Fieldhouse in IND. This was the day after our crummy loss to Duke in the Final Four, so the smile is genuinely fake at that point.
