Congratulations are in order

I talked to THE KID last night and he is graduating from BCT (basic crewman training) today. I am very proud of him and his accomplishment. Poor kid, he had been through hell the last 48 hours, but survived and past. He is now according to the Navy a Petty Officer 3rd Class and has a new rating. His graduation is today, I guess they have a ceremony. No rest for the wicked, he gets handed over the QCT (Qualified Crewman Training) after that. He is excited for the next part of training, due to the fact this is the so called cool part, weapons and such... He has another 12 weeks and if he gets through that the he will get his SWCC pin.

a soldiers wife,

Thanks,
Mom is ok, very proud, just having a hard time with the whole special warfare lifestyle. It will be difficult not knowing where he is, when he will be back. I guess I'm glad he will be highly trained and a badass... I kept asking why he couldn't be on the big safer Navy boats...He just laughs at me. I support him in whatever he does, so I'm dealing the best way we military mom's do. Worry on the inside and smile and brag on the outside..

He will be okay and so will you, I have friends that do that on the Army side of the house....a close friend who's husband was in deep for more then half his career. Her advise....they have the best training, what more can you ask for.

Not to worry, Your son will be surrounded by his brothers, who care for him as much as they do for themselves. Spec war types are a very closeknitted group whom have each others back, at all times, on duty and off.

He will be fine. Take that from an old salt.

unkawill,
Thanks, I know your right.. He is getting the best training with the best guys.
