4 More jumps then my kid becomes Airborne in the United States Army! I thought my proudest moment was 3 weeks ago when I watched him graduate from boot camp. I guess I was wrong! Kid makes me more proud every day!

Hell yeah!

Tell Him thanks for his service. Is he at Bragg? I am not far from there.

Congratulations, on your kid falling out of a plane and hitting the ground, it's called gravity.

From an old crusty paratrooper, I've jumped out of shit that ain't even in the inventory anymore; I graduated jump school back in 96.

You going to be their to pin his wings or what?

I wish I could go, I used my vaca to spend a bunch of time with him after Boot camp. (he was there from Jan 10 to August 8- broke his hand in the middle of BC number 1)

Congrats to you and your son....

But I Never could figure out why they call them "Airborne".

When I was flying C-130s out of Pope AFB we took them up regularly. But every one of those paratroopers feel like a rock when they went out the doors. If it weren't for the parachute, they would have kept falling like a rock all of the way to the ground....;)

Several of their mottos were interesting:

"Death From Above"

"Kill Them All, Let God Sort Out the Good Ones"

Congrats on your kids accomplishments.
I hope for your son's sake he's not sent to the sandbox to fight these ISIS idiots our Govt commissioned and lost control of.

My first Intel school was where the 101st Airborne "Screamin Eagles" were trained.

Congratulate him for having the cajones to stick with it through a tough program and thank him for stepping up and volunteering to defend the rest of us.
