In the Navy....

The phone rang at 5:43 am this morning. I figured somehting terrible had happend. It did, sort of. My nephew Justin joined the Navy. Yesterday at 4am his ex-father (hey the guys barely been around for the last 15 years) picked him up and took him to the recruiter. He didn't sign up yesterday. But I guess he got up early this morning and went down and signed up. I think it's a 6 year stint. Amazing that someone that has only been 18 for 17 days and never been out on there own would do that. He goes in Dec 4th.

I'll post more later cause I'm still in shock.

If one is going to join any service these days, the Navy is the safest one.

I suspect that recruitment offices are full of barely 18 men who have "never been" anywhere before. It's the only way some ever get beyond the borders of their hometown.
Good luck to your nephew.

I didn't realize there was a "bad" one. Well, I suppose there had to be if they're twins. :-)

How is she taking to Justin joining the military?

Terrible. Plus they just layed off her whole staff and she has 60 and then if things don't turn around they will lay her off.

I'm so sorry. It hurts like hell to see guys get duped into throwing their lives away like that.
