Our oldest son is in Beast right now at West Point. As you could imagine, he achieved almost every superlative at his JROTC unit in high school, This past spring, we told the instructors, whom we absolutely respect and admire; that another "flyboy" would be joining their group. Oh the looks on their faces just lit up. The wife and I immediately started to attempt to temper their expectations. We emphasized is different and asked that he start with an open slate in their minds from Day 1, just like the older one did. Today, our younger son started their "Two-Week Training" at the same JROTC unit. As i took him this morning, I revisited how the Juniors and Seniors in the cadre were the cadets his older brother taught and lead. I reminded him to be his own man and that it was his show. Everything went well, but I did laugh when he described the opening formation, the group commander approached him... What's your last name? ("Flyboy") you mean The Flyboy?( about 9-10 heads openly turn around in formation) Yes, sir. are you as good as he was? Don't know, but I am going to earn what do on my own name, not his. I wrote all of that to ask this: What challenges have you had with younger siblings following their older SA Appointee at High School? I think ours is going to be just fine, but it is a challenging balance. He deeply respects and looks up to his older brother, and rightly so; but how do you temper that with " Forget about your bro- do your own thing?" Have you found it challenging to deal with the adults'( coaches/ teachers/ect) expectations on the younger child?
