    I'll be glued to my computer chair! Give us a big wave. Hug & congratulate my favorite Coastie for me. High five him too for doing it with honors!!!!! He's so awesome. And when you high five him, do be sure to brace yourself. He does it with such gusto that he almost knocks down small Moms & such. :wink: I sure hope he gets to keep the flag that he "owned" so dearly at football games. LOL

    I can't believe this day has come. Wow but its been a short four years. Congrats my friend for having such a fine officer.

    We won't be available to watch it live--will there be a link available where we can watch the entire ceremony once it's over?

    I'm such a freaking cry baby. Gee thanks Boss. I could hardly see that kid through the haze of tears. Waited a long time for this day. Since 05 actually. I'm next. Wait for me! Until then, please know I'm dancing. Of course you knew that already.....

    Thanks JM! I can't wait to see your son graduate too! They have come so far in four years. More pictures to come soon. One of the cameras died at the end but some other relatives took more of us pinning on his shoulder boards after the graduation. It was a great day.:thumb:
