So the looooonnnggggg road has nearly come to fruition. From the arduous application process to getting the scholarship offer, dealing with the stress of waiting for a medical waiver, then having to drop out of ROTC for a semester to re-hab from knee surgery. Add (4) years early morning PT including being part of Ranger Challenge on top of working her tail off to maintain a 3.5 GPA in a very challenging major in order to achieve the active duty slot she wanted Now, I (yes, I said *I*) and a short (4) weeks away from attending my daughters commissioning ceremony on what just may turn out to be the happiest day of my life. No doubt the proudest as a father. As the son of a lifelong, retired marine captain, not doing a stint in the military is one of my few regrets in life...even after working in law enforcement the last 29 years. Seeing both my kids participate in ROTC is very rewarding. :big grin: To top it all off, I'll get to repeat this process (2) years down the road when my son commissions as well. Realizing that it's our awesome off-spring that deserve the real credit, I want to congratulate all the parents who are on this path to commissioning as well. I hope you enjoy the upcoming commissioning experience as much as I know I will.
