Congrats to my son, Ricky, who you can find on his blog on the lower left corner of this page. He was promoted today to Staff SGT. He's a sophomore and on "staff" at his high school. Quite an honor and tonight he's celebrating by walking our house in his uniform, sporting his new stripes. I guess this harkens back to the days when I would get my new medals for Cub Scots and Webloes. There was nothing like the feel of that uniform; especially because my dad had a real one for the Air Force.
And we heard our second oldest son, too, has gotten into the riffle unit at their school. Following in big brother's foot steps, but also walking to the side of them, as well.
Congrats to both of them.
Thanks, too, to Maj. Pierce at school. Glad you are raising up our fine oldest boys in such a positive way.
