Navy Dads

Just got home from a trip to Great Lakes.  As an AF veteran, I have a hard time admitting that the Navy has a pretty sweet deal thing going up there.  Everything from doing just about everything inside, to the high-fidelity simulations used to teach and train new skills are way beyond the tools we had when I went through basic.  Granted, a lot has changed since then but it is still impressive.  

I really enjoyed PIR and watching the 900s perform.  It was far more of a show than I expected and was grateful to see it.  On top of that, I got to spend a little extra time with my sailor because of Veteran's Day.  It was fun playing tourist in Chicago.  And then, I got to put her on the plane to A School on Saturday.  Granted, that was mostly by chance in that we were both flying out the same day and she was flying out a little be me.

I absolutely loved going to our son's PIR. It was one of the most emotional things I had ever seen. Remember it like it was yesterday.
