    Just wanted to say GOOD LUCK and stay strong to all my fellow Air Force Academy class of 2013 soon-to-be-basics before all of us head off to the academy for I-Day.

    In the wise words of Dr. Seuss (which seem to fit almost perfectly from what I hear of basic):

    But on you will go
    though the weather be foul
    On you will go
    though your enemies prowl
    On you will go
    though the Hakken-Kraks howl
    Onward up many
    a frightening creek,
    though your arms may get sore
    and your sneakers may leak.

    On and on you will hike
    and I know you'll hike far
    and face up to your problems
    whatever they are.

    You'll get mixed up, of course,
    as you already know.
    You'll get mixed up
    with many strange birds as you go.
    So be sure when you step.
    Step with care and great tact
    and remember that Life's
    a Great Balancing Act.
    Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
    And never mix up your right foot with your left.

    And will you succeed?
    Yes! You will, indeed!
    (98 and 3 / 4 percent guaranteed.)

    KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

    So...
    be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
    or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
    you're off to Great Places!
    Today is your day!
    Your mountain is waiting.
    So...get on your way!

    -Dr. Seuss

    literally taken, our arms WILL get sore, and our shoes WILL leak, and most of us just might mix up our right and left. :smile:

    My dad has been reading me "Oh the places you'll go" since I was born, and he read it to me for the last time last night :frown:.

    You'll be on your way up!
    You'll be seeing great sights!
    You'll join the high fliers
    who soar to high heights.


    [. . .]

    So...
    be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
    or Mordecai Ali Van Allen o'Shea,
    you're off to Great Places!
    Today is your day!
    Your mountain is waiting.
    So... get on your way!
