My DS is a very different person has matured beyond belief and I am so proud . People are forever stopping him when we are off campus and thanking him for his service. At first he was uncomfortable with this explaining to them he is still a student. Now he says thank you and politely walks on.Last weekend he stopped to talk with a group of homeless vets. They stopped him asked him about his ribbons and commented on the red one which means active during time of war and the conversation was wonderful. He called them sir and thanked them for their service they in turn told him how proud they were to meet a academy student and hoped he would be safe and make them proud. To see my child -no --man- give the respect to these vets above and beyond the necessary was -well emotional. Just saying--these young people are maturing in leaps and bounds . They are making us all very proud.
