Ron: Your mini-essay on life and its surprises should stand alone, so I won't detract from it by putting this up along with it. Your pride in your son is justified, especially at a time when young people seem to be intent on scrapping many of the values of earlier generations. Young men profit, I think, from being exposed to a bit of discipline. I grew up in the Navy, literally, and I'm grateful for it. The Lord knows what might have become of me had I not enlisted when I did. May your son graduate with honors and enjoy a satisfying career in the Merchant Navy.
