Wonderful news, Jim!!! I bet you are proud!
Auralie, in my opinion, fwiw...... the military is a far better option
than running the streets and doing odd jobs. The military is an excellent
place to learn work ethic and discipline. Perhaps just what they need to jump
start them into successful careers, many go to college while in the
military, or when they discharge on the GI bill. I would not write them off
yet, I would be proud that they are serving their country, and be hopeful that
they will benefit from what the military offers.
Just my thoughts on this....
As for drunken sailors.....yes, it seems that things have changed in
regards to drinking....the office cocktail parties, the drinks at offices before
heading home, etc. etc. Seems everyone was a bit more liberal in past
decades about drinking than they are now due to laws changing. Company
parties now have either totally disapeared, or they are non-alcoholic, or keep a
strict watch on this. Even the military has done so.

How nice to have a grandson who is accomplishing things. All of mine
that have reached that age have joined the military. Bummer. My family
has a long tradition of education on both sides, but their mother didn't
that it was important, since noone in her family was educated. She home-
schooled them when she had no education herself, and now those three are in
the military. They seem to be doing well, and maybe that will be good for
them. My oldest son spent four years in the Navy but came out on his way
to college, and feels it very important for his two who have both graduated
from U. of Wash. with honors. His son also had a hitch in the Navy but was
booted out for drunk driving. When I worked for the Navy in the 1950s
driving was what sailors did. Oh well, time changes.
