My 21 year old just finished his Special Forces training.
He started his career as an Army Diver, in a group of 33, he was 1 of 2 still remaining when he failed one of the final "drown tests". Not to be deterred, he studied and was able to pass all needed to be accepted into the Airborne Division/Special Forces. After extensive training he graduated Friday and is now a Green Beret. Next step is language school. I must say we are very proud of our son. On a sad note we had to tell him friday that his grandmother had passed away 2 weeks ago.
Just wanted to share our excitement, as several may remember him as my youngest who was at my side running the Mass Gas Bash for several years.
