surprising news from oldest son
Thursday, August 02, 2018
My son had wanted to go to college, police academy and then maybe after few years as policeman join the FBI. This has been what he has said for about the last 4 or 5 years. He graduated 2017 and went a year at local Junior College. He did not do that well only getting a GPA of 1.0. He is 6' 8" and will turn 19 later this month. I asked him today about when he was going back to college, only to be told he has decided to join the military instead. I just hate that I think he feels like a failure because he didn't do well in college. I guess I should be happy that he has another plan. I am worried as do not feel he's ready but guess the military is about making men out of boys. His first choice is Air Force. Not sure what qualifications are but hopefully he meets them. I wasn't expecting this and going to take a little getting use to. He plans on waiting until next year as he has a speeding ticket he wants to take care of first.
