    My son does not want to take the individual photograph for the Warrior Run.

    "Why?:confused:," I asked...

    My appointee answers, " Because, I don't want to be one of the few taking pictures for mommy and daddy...take pictures when you see me during Parent's Weekend"

    I responded, "Honey, everybody takes individual pictures. It's up to us as to whether we want to purchase the packet or not..."

    Of course he answers, "Okay, I can deal with that...but if that's not the case, I won't take the picture.."

    Okay, now my question to anyone who has the answer--Was I right? :confused:

    MM I think you did the right thing. Your plebe doesnt want you to make a fuss...it's natural...sort of like the kids who tell their parents not to bother coming to r-day. Photos of this type are cherished by us parents but also become important to the kids, especially as time goes on. Just check out the "facebook" accounts of any kid at a service academy and you will find plenty of "hooah" photos. Such things as firing guns, running obstacle courses, firing flares, etc. find their way into these photo collections and are part of the whole academy process for both the parents and kids. So go ahead, order the photos. You don't have to make a big deal out of it(i.e. put them in the local paper) but as time goes on your cadet will thank you for it.
