Thanks for the welcoming. So much has changed since I served. I do have a few questions for you about the AWO rate. Did your son like it. Was school hard? What kind of job opportunities did he have after his enlistment? The last ? Is kinda my big one. The job seems really cool. Did he purse his degree while serving? What are good degrees to purse that are job related? Sorry so many ?’s

Appreciate it Jim. Best job in the world despite where society is today. It was just time for me to move on. No regrets and not a bad thing to say about it.

Jim thanks so much.  My son Connor is my first military son.  My oldest son is in college.  Two of my uncles and one grandfather were in the Air Force.

I never served.  I was a police officer for 25+ years just recently retiring and now working for our county prosecutor.  

All is good but I do miss him already!!!

I'm going to take some time and delve into your website.  I already read about the taxi to graduation.  Great stuff.  He graduates sometime in November and stays in Great Lakes fro his A school.

Thanks for sharing about you and your family!!

Hi Jim.  Thank you for responding back. I have mixed emotions on my son leaving. I just spoke to him and he should be in silverdale, WA tomorrow. I will check out this site for sure.  Have a good evening.  Anne

Jim,

Thank you for reaching out, it's been lonely here with my son away at Basic Training. I am grateful and somewhat overwhelmed by the support that I have received in just my few short days of signing up. I'm so happy that I did. I feel like that I have new family members. Thank you for your words in easing me into my new family.

Bob Crawford
