    Great questions Chea!!

    History:

    My DH is active duty ARMY & on his way to OBC...


    My eldest (Katie) wants to go into the Air Force (she wants to be a Culinary Genius!)...

    My father was Army -- retired now!

    Ds is at that easily influenced age and his friends have decided that Army is "cooler"....go figure!

    Well, one of mine had wanted to go into the Navy or Airforce before all of this stuff happened in Iraq and Afganistan. However, after seeing one of their friend's fathers National Guard Unit called up and sent to Afganistan for a year and the toll it took on their friend and then having one of my former students recently killed in Iraq, he has now changed his mind. He was thinking about becoming a JAG officer but is now going to go the non militarty route and become a civilian lawyer instead. Our family has a long history of military service including West Point Graduates and Instructors, Army, Navy, Navy SEAL and people in the military all the way back to the Revolutionary and Civil War.

    So I have:
    1 Lawyer
    1 Landscape Architect
    1 Youth Pastor/Computer Programmer
