ORIGINAL POST FROM 2010
Bethany, my wife, and I just returned from spending a week at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas to watch our oldest son, Patrick (21), graduate from basic training before starting security forces training this week. This was a moving week for us as we watched our young man graduate one day and the next seeing the entire class stand in formation and march on the parade grounds in 90 degree heat and 89% humidity without so much as a blink. How do they do that? Really!
And while this post is more about pride in my son than it is about business, I can't help but think that the reason that we can engage in a free enterprise and enjoy the fruits of our labor is due in no small part to the men and women who serve to keep our nation strong. My congratulations, admiration and unwavering support to Patrick, and those who have gone before him and who will certainly follow in pursuit of keeping our United States strong and free.
Since the original post Patrick has been keeping busy. He managed to fit in several tours to Iraq and one brief visit to Kuwait, found time to marry a beautiful Buckeye fan in Ohio (Laura) and is planning on a re up next year.
