Dave thanks for your reply. Yes Dave, you're right - i've never been in the military. It's people like you and (I assume) Jim and Paul and so many others who have made that sacrifice so that everyone else - like me - can enjoy life in this great country. Are the kids today soft? Yeah, I guess so. But it's always been like that, down through the generations. I work very hard to give my kids a better life than I had - just like my parents and my grandparents wanted to do for me. As for the needs of the Navy; I still believe in my son's situation there was some deception and coercion involved the process of his change of rating from AECF field to Navy corpsman; for the reasons I've stated before. That being said, I remain very happy and proud of his decision to enlist and know his years of Navy service will be very exciting and rewarding. Congrats on your daughter's pending enlistment - please keep us all posted on her progress. thanks again Ed
