    Well, we are taking our son back to school tomorrow to get ready for the start of his Sophomore/MS2 year in AROTC. This will be a big step because once he starts his first day he belongs to the Army.

    We just want to wish all the cadets from every service and every year the best of luck. Some will be starting soon while others still have a month left to relax a bit. All of your dreams are within reach, work hard, be smart and your opportunities are endless.

    Best of luck to you all.

    +1. Good luck to your DS. Hope y'all have a fun trip. Our's leaves tomorrow for a few days of fun with his MIDN roomates and then he and the other sophmores will join the folks in Freshman O for the fun part of their week... cookout, swimming and sailing. He's excited to get back in the groove. He's downstairs now working on his scholarship application essay. I won't let him leave town until its done. He won't be late this year! :smile:

    Best hopes, wishes and thoughts to all of the cadets as they enter their new yr.

    Jcleppe you post made me laugh...I envisioned you sitting in your car loaded with his stuff honking the horn as he does the dance around the printer to hurry up and finish printing!

    At least that would probably be the way it would go down in our house.:rolleyes:

    The new school year...so glad its finally here! Our DS has spent the summer in BCT at Ft. Benning - left early June and we go to GA for graduation next week. He'll be back just in time for school to start 8/27:smile: No injuries or other problems so he's good to graduate and get back to ROTC MSII year and the much anticipated contract signing this fall.:thumb:

    Hope all of you had a great summer and have safe travels getting those kiddos back to school!

    Ditto from here - best of luck to all of our cadets for a successful year!

    5 more days at home for my DS - he hasn't even finished his laundry from his CULP trip yet! I'm not getting involved :rolleyes:

    Congratulations to your son. He has done good work and his contract signing will be his reward, but the start of a journey. Best of luck to him in his coming years.

    Good luck to any people entering ROTC this fall. Your real work has yet to begin, but when it does, don't get overwhelmed. Work hard and drive on. It all gets better with time.
