Congrats. I graduated basic at Ft. Knox in '85 and was at Benning with the 82nd '85 to '87. Keep him away from Victory Drive, lol, and make sure he shaves and shapes that beret. Apparently they don't teach how to wear it looking at some of the other guys in the group pic, lol

Congrats Reb, good luck to your son. I graduated from Basic in 1972 at Fort Ord, CA. Different world then. The "Good Old Days" they were not. The Army is definitely different now and better than the Army of 1972.

Grats! My father used to train soldiers at Fort benning before he retired there in '78. Ranger training if I remember correctly as he trained on the jump towers.

Remember me and my mom running into him at the base hospital one day when I was a young boy. I had broke my arm; one of his soldiers had been injured at the grenade training course.
