Just wanted to share very proud of my grandson Cole
Graduated basic training today Fort Benning Georgia
His dad wanted him to go Navy but he wanted to join the
Army because grampa had served in that branch.
So it's a brief visit and he's off for more training (ranger school)
We are so very proud of him Jim
Cole and those like him in military service represent the very best of their generation. I wish him well. You're blessed to have such a fine Grandson.
Jim, Does that mean that he went Airborne? Fort Benning and Ranger makes me think that way. Good for him and your family, Scott
Yes he will be jumping out of a perfectly good plane
Jim, I chewed the same dust he will be at jump school. 23 Military jumps to 2 private
That is great news and something to be really proud of him for!
Hap l9l5 cut off
My hat's off to any young man or woman willing to "stand the watch" so the rest of us can sleep safe at night.
That's a man to be proud of. He'll wear his wings with great pride. God bless our military and God bless America!
You can be proud of your grandson.
Serving our country is a high level,of patriotism and responsibility.
I thank you and him for protecting us.
PS our flag pole has a yellow ribbon tied to it.
It is for a friend that is assigned to the Mid East
It will be there until he returns and we will have a party when it is removed.
