Yesterday (15 May 2019) I got to commission my DS as a Army 2LT . . . truly a very special and proud moment for me and our family. DS will branch Aviation. Today (16 May 2019) my DS graduated from VMI with a degree in Physics. A truly great achievement by him for him. The road was hard, and he is better for it . . . so very proud. I want to thank all of you on this site that provided us with such great advice and helped us navigate through the 4 years of AROTC and VMI . . . Some of you provided private direct messages that were priceless . . . Some of you didn't even know that the advice you provided in varoius posts were just what we needed to hear. To all of you . . . thank you for sharing your knowledge, wisdom and experience . . . this is truly a great Forum.
