    Got my cherished Men's Glee Club concert tickets(sold out), family and friends graduation dinner party reservation details all taken care of:thumb: last weekend.....Mid took his 1st final exam Monday.....the countdown has begun....4 years seems to have just flown by for this parent....we just flew out to Canoe U for a last fun weekend of croquet and taking Mid friends out to dinner before the big CW hits.

    Who is the speaker for Commissioning this year:confused:, I failed to ask the Mid ?

    Couldn't agree more, AF68. In fact, Sec. Gates himself was weepy. His remarks were just amazing. I didn't hear much for a minute or two after he said something like, "Every day, I thought of the men and women in uniform as my own children..." as I was crying too hard. I've been to a half dozen commencements in the last few years, but the only speech I recall is his.

    Have a great and wonderful day. You will remember it forever.

    One of the best since MacArthur: "Serve With Honor And Come Home Safely"

    Like I said. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. Hope Panetta can repeat.

    Try to stay in the shade it gets brutal. Bring a long lense for the camera.

    Congratulations to the Class and parents of 2012. Tomorrow is your day! Enjoy the heck out of it and take lots of pictures. It will all happen in a giant blur of activity.
