    Well, I'll be off of TacomaWorld until at least Friday. My son is graduating from Army Basic Training in Missouri. I'm going up there tonight and spend the next three days with him and watch him graduate. I haven't told him that his grandpa has passed yet. He's going to be very upset. But I wanted him to finish without any distractions. I'll see ya'll in a bit.

    I guess they send you to the same place your tech school will be. He will be a Combat Engineer after he graduates High School Next Year and that's where their school is.

    HOOAH for your son's achievement! I'm sure you are very proud of him!

    As far as the sad news you will share with your son, I don't really know what to say. There will be many here thinking of you as well as your dad's legacy to give you strength. My prayers are with you on your trip Missileman
