This was a trip of very mixed emotions. My grandson is leaving for an experience he has never encountered. Tomorrow morning at 3 am he is being picked up at his house as he joined the Navy. After the boot camp training he gets five days home and will be gone again for Navy Seal training. This is something he wants and has thought about and made up his mind. This goes without saying, we are all extremely proud of him but totally worried. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Well, first of all, for him, I hope he makes the grade in flying colors ..... Navy Seal is a tough sector of the military forces. Then for you I hope he will remain state side and that DT gets us out of all those foreign wars.

I'm sure he has a few challenges ahead of him but if it is what he wants, then all you can do is pray he'll be okay and that he'll enjoy it.

I know what you are saying and it is his decision and even though we all let him know we are behind him 100% we are all scared too.

How old is he (hope you don't mind me asking)? I have quite a few acquaintances in the US, who are or were in the Navy, Congrats to the boy, he is doing what he wants to.

He will be 21 in February. To me I just see the baby that I always had around me. That time went so fast.
