John and Keith!    Great to hear from you guys!   Glad to hear everything is still going well..      John, good luck on the surgery.  Please let us know how it goes.

Keith, I guess we are neighbors again.   North Carolina or Georgia for that matter.  :)     Can't you retire from the army at 20 years with full privileges?

Yes, full benefits at 20 years.  My retirement pay is 50% of my highest pay for three years, averaged together, and every year past 20 is another 2.5%.  I will pin Major at about 19, which means if i want to maximize my pay, i would retire at 22 years for 55% of Major Pay for three years.  Whereas, if i retire at 20 years, it would be 50% of my pay for two years as a Captain and one year as a Major.  It is a big pay bump from Captain to Major, and the difference in pay would be a car payment.  I am planning on staying to 22 unless they upset me, then who knows what.

Ramblin, reporting as ordered!

Jeremy is 17 now...

I'm having a real problem processing that. We've all been together (aside from the last few quiet years) a long time now.

Good luck with the surgery.  I wish you a speedy recovery.

Wow! So much awesomeness John! Condolences..err..Congrats to your boy for getting a steady girl! LOL. Naval Sea Cadets sounds cool, is it similar to JROTC? Also, Good luck on your surgery!

Naval Sea Cadets is somewhat like JROTC, but MUCH better! We drill one weekend a month and then have advanced training two weeks a year at least. JROTC discipline has become a joke and their training is lacking in comparison. For instance last summer Jeremy spent two week at NAS Lemoore working with the Navy on FA-18's, where he worked with the various maintenance shops. He helped install a landing gear switch, started and brought an FA-18 to test throttle, and learned about the plane hands on. We have had cadets helm super carriers and do at sea replenishment. Jeremy got CERT certified at a training the year before last. JROTC is a decent program, but the schools have dumbed it down, and made it a more sensitive program.

William is in Cub Scouts, and as such i was his Tiger Den leader and will assume the Wolf Den leader next school year.

As Randy can attest as well, being a Den leader is extremely rewarding and a whole lotta fun!

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt! Some of the best times I have had with my boy were in scouts. Boy Scouts is different and you're not as involved directly with the boys or your son, but you do get to watch the circus as they learn and grow. The goal as an adult leader is to keep them from killing themselves as they fumble around in the woods. Watch as they burn themselves, but stopping them before reaching third degree burns.  ~o)

The post quote feature is not working for me for some reason, so I had to do it cut and paste.

That's great Keith!   I wish I would've known all this when I was in high school.     Congrats to you and just like you, I would wait and retire at 22 as well.

Hey Randy.  Long time no see..     Glad everything is going good for you.    I have been an Assistance Scout Master for over 3 years now.  My oldest is 17 and it's gonna be close if he can hurry his ass up to rank up to Eagle Scout.

....wow, that profile pic is a LONG time ago LOL.

Since then, upgraded to three daughters, current ages 9, 7 and 5.

Bought a house. Used to really care about national politics, now I pay attention to local stuff, like school issues, etc.

Kinda gotten used to the lack of sleep....
