Today is Gary Jr.’s 18th Birthday. On June 12th he graduates from EHS. On June 30th, he ships out to boot camp in GA. He has wanted to be a soldier since he was a kid, has been a ‘future’ soldier for the last year, and has been accepted for advanced training already. I am positive he will shine! I am very proud of him. He has become a fine young man, one fit to excel in anything he decides to do.
Above is a slideshow of Gary through the years. I have added more pictures from today to the end of slideshow.
Well, we had a BBQ of Chicken, Ribs, Hot Dogs and Garlic Red Potatoes, followed by cake and ice cream, of course. Some of Gary’s closest friends came by as did his sweetie Kate.
I had a day I will always remember!
