Son Joe is in the Navy

Real Estate Agent with

Last week I took my son down to the Navy recruiting office where i left him. He was shipped out to Great Lakes for basic. I am proud of him and miss him all at the same time. I am his Italian father. so I say to my wife , I wonder what Joe is doing now? She says thinks like, Oh he is having a leisurely lunch. or depending on the time of day she will say they are probably having diner and a movie.

Now I know she is making fun of me. Hey isn't that part of a spouses job?  So have a good thought for son Joe who is serving us . Thanks to all

I wish your son Joe, and all of our military only the best. My Dad took me down to the Selective Service Board too. I never forgot that.

You should be very proud. As one who started out at Navy boot camp and retired as an officer 20 years later, I can assure you he is having a lesiurely lunch with the guys!  No, boot camp was not fun but it made me what I am today  I am sure you are proud!

My dad started in the Navy at the Great Lakes.    You son will be in my prayers.  Tell him my family is thankful and honored.
