    Amen, from another who was at the other end of the phone.

    Just kidding. Great post!! Thank you.

    ^^^^^^^ LOL (me too!)

    I now know why when my daughter came home for Thanksgiving break she left her room a mess! I KNOW she can clean it! She lives for Saturday AM Inspections! If I am supposed to be understanding - I guess I can be understanding :wink:

    Hi! This is one of my 1st Posts!

    My s school gave him his own personal assembly for getting into WP! It was the coolest thing I had ever seen! My dh is in Bagdad, he was on the webcam watching live. At the end, son got up and said a few words, then said, "I'd like to thank my MOM WHO I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT!!!" he then thanked a few others, and then he looked at his dad who was on the screen of my 17" computer and thanked him and said he was his HERO, he the couldnt speek anymore! I was totally touched & so was everyone else! NOT A DRY ADULT EYE IN THE AUDITORIUM!!!

    I think he understood what it took to get him this far!!! Thank God! Now to get him there!

    :usa: GO ARMY BEAT NAVY!!!:wink:

    ArmyWife29 - Welcome to the forum. I am especially glad because you are a "Woop Mom". For a long time we Army parents on the forum have been outnumbered by the sea services (Navy/Coast Guard/Merchant Marine) parents, it looks like the tide is turning. :thumb:

    Sigh. I guess I'm a freak of nature here. I need more MMA parents to rally up!! After all, we get to hoop & shout for any branch of service. :wink:
    GO Navy!
    GO Army!
    GO Coast Guard!
    GO Air Force!

    Not in any particular order..... LOL

    MMA parents should probably cheer for Coast Guard last....after we embarrassed them on the field this year (I stopped in for the game while I was in RI, got a free shirt out of it).


    I'll cheer for you though.


    Go MERCHANT MARINE!


    And so as not to be a traitor...


    GO COAST GUARD!

    Come on now people, let's not lump all of the sea services into one group...

    Some sea service branches have been around since 1790, while other's have been around since 1798 (even if they like printing 1775 on all of their shirts). Let's not get that old school branch mixed up with any newbies...

    Oh you better hush up. I just don't wanna talk about last year's terrible game. Next year, I'm gonna put all those guys in there with their hands tied behind their backs & they'll come ahead & kick some butt. You just wait & see.

    KP parents probably feel like Sybil. You know.... six personalities & bordering schizophrenia. I am rooting for everyone. :biggrin:

    GO COASTIES! LOL
