    David, you were good looking in both! :cool: I like the later, though my middle school students would probably disagree. :rofl:

    The poll's only for fun, based on actual comments I've had from friends. I know there are far more important things.

    My family have complained that I've only been back three days but the fridge is empty and everything smells of feet!

    LOL! That will change when you are 22 or 23. The feet get with it! The food, well that's another story.

    My first son, now 40, wasn't doing so good in college, dropped out and joined the Army. Served with distinction in the Armor MOS, became a M1A1A1 tank commander and was discharged in '93 I think. The army focused him, gave him the motivation and confidence to make his mark in the professional world.

    My second son has now finished basic and nearly completing his MOS training as a engineering tech, 21T. Same army, same result. He's was lost but now he's found. Both of my sons loved the Army and excelled in it. #2 will come home soon to start college and specialize in a particular segment of his MOS.

    My #3 son is not the type to be regimented. He and his dog, Gypsy, a pure bred Husky, are right out of "Grizzly Adams".

    Good luck and thank you for serving.

    Cheers,

    Pat

    Hey, I notice your blue chord. Are you infantry? I'm leaving for MCRD San Diego in June to become a Marine. I can't wait...only a few more months...

    Hey there, Semper Fi! Infantry, yes.

    All the best to you with your career.

    Well, my girlfriend would agree with you!
