God bless that young man.  I salute him and all our military.  Be proud of him.  One of the few of our youth with a good head on his shoulders.  Hope he learns to like kim chee.  I personally can't stand it.

Hello everyone.... Camp Humphreys it is.

That's a huge base! 23rd chemical battalion is there. Will he be assigned to them? I know Combined Command was consolidating many units, as part of an agreement with the Korean government. It's like a mini city.

Bob, not sure which battalion he’ll be assigned to, he kind of let’s me know as he finds out, unless he has to be secretive..... I saw a YouTube video of the base.... WOW!!! Just about looks like a resort... Lol!! I’m sure as he gets closer to graduation he’ll tell me more.

Well folks, he did it! My DS graduated from The United States Military Academy @ West Point on Saturday May 25th. He’s officially a member of “The Long Grey Line”. He was commissioned as a 2LT in the US Army after the graduation ceremony. It’s been a 57 month journey that he saw to the end, so worth it though. Up next is BOLC  (Basic Officer Leadership Course) in July for a 4 month duration,  a short break then off to Korea in December on his birthday. He’s ready, they’re all ready to lead America’s Soldiers near and far. We plan to get some fishing trips in after he returns from Vacation with some of the other graduates from his  company. It’s been a whirlwind for sure.... Thank You everyone for the support and well wishes.. Truly appreciated. Pictures are not in any specific order. I’ll post more after editing.

Incredible honor for him and your family.  May God watch over him.  Tell him how proud this old vet is of the new lieutenant's accomplishments.

Beach A Cow,

 

I haven't seen this or posted to you before.  God Bless you and your family and YOUR SON!!!  We need so many more young men like him in the USA.  In the late 70s and the early 80s as a member of the Delaware National Guard,. we used to fly up and support the cadets' field training between their Jr. and Sr. year.  At that time, the unit had Huey's and the cadets loved to climb on board and ride.  We'd low level for them and would get big grins and thumbs up.  It was fun working with them, even though they were going to become RLO's :)

 

I don't know what his MOS will be but tell him to consider Army Aviation!!!!  And whatever else he does, Go Airborne!!!!

Good to see that everyone here is safe. I thought of this thread when I read about that roll-over wreck.

 

Back to ruling the internet for me I guess. :shaky:

I got a cold chill when I saw that story about the wreck and thought about this thread.

All, 

My son is fine as he graduated o few weeks ago and is on leave before Reporting for BOLC. Please pray for Cadet Morgan and his family... We’re all still in shock including my son as Cadet Morgan was in the same company as my son. God Bless you all.
