    Great article. Wish more people could or would try to understand who it is that defends them and their rights.

    We live in small, rural western town and my son gets this from his friends constantly. He had been telling him about this crazy application process he was going through to "get into Navy." When he received a nomination to USMA and told his friends West Point, they were impressed, thinking all along he was having difficulty enlisting into the Navy.

    The second paragraph in your original question is your answer...

    "We are not from a military family, and in all honesty it has taken me a while to get used to the idea of him going into the military. But I have come to peace with it because I know this is a calling he has believed in for years."
