Hey brother, congrats on Chad II!!!!! I am 2 hours from Ft Carson if anything is needed. If you come out to visit him, we have to meet up and maybe do some shooting.

Thank you all so very much for the advice, gratitude, and prayers.

I must admit that watching Chad II Graduate today caused a shiver of fear to sneak up on me, which has shaken me to my core. I cannot put the Pride I have for my Son into words, but I know that my Son will soon be in harm's way and that I could lose him. It terrifies me to know I have raised him in a way that guided him to be a Warrior.

I don't ask for God to keep my boy safe, as it would be an insult to Father's that have lost son's in the Service of their Country, all I can say is that I am thankful he gave me MY Son, and I pray that I have loved him how he deserves and that he never doubts his fathers love. I know he is a man, but I always see him as my curly headed little buddy. His Mother and I have raised our Son to live with honor and integrity, to love with all his heart, and to never quit.

The Army has taken those things and molded him into a Warrior and a Husband. I have no doubts that he will succeed in all he does.

Thank you all for sharing this special time with me.

My son loves Serving his Country and being a Soldier. He is a fish in water.

Awesome posts from an awesome family. I really am at a loss for words. I will say at least this: Our country, and our world, needs warriors like him. He and his Stryker Unit stand between the absolute worst in the world and the best. Thank God for him and for his fellow soldiers who volunteer to stand tall in the breach.

Amen.
Godspeed to you Chad II. Be a great husband and warrior.

Well done Chad.
