OT - Grandson Completed Jump School


Recommended Posts

Not too interesting to others, but a milestone for him.  With Ranger training and Airborne school behind him, I don't know what is next - Mountain Training (Ft Drum is where he is going).  Maybe icicle herding. :-)  He is having an absolute wonderful time training and enjoying every minute of it.

AWESOME!!!  Congratulations.  It's such a great proud feeling when your grandchildren do so well.

 

I'm glad he didn't have to use a T-10.  :D My other favourites were skiing and SCUBA diving. :wub:  For a young guy like your grandson. the opportunity to continue to enjoy fun sports as a Marine or soldier is priceless.  :P

 

My own son, Captain Bill (Silly Billy 55550L), followed with Sky Diving. George H. W. Bush jumped at 90. Once my ankle and knee surgeries are completed, I will emulate that President.   :D

 

Again, Congratulations to your grandson and to you.
