    Congratulations to your son, Healingtouch! I'm sure the military will be proud to call him one of their own! Being a military spouse and momma to a couple veterans of the armed forces myself, I know how proud you must truly be! I can "feel" the warmth of your smile across these "cyber waves"! May God bless and keep your son always!

    That is very good news, indeed. I know that the Service Academies offer a spectacular education, and that he worked hard to have the kind of records to get in. Best wishes, and tell him to start "training, physically, for that first summer coming up--it's brutal!!
