    My son did it. Graduated BMT last Fri. at Lackland AFB. Now he's in Tech school at Sheppard AFB. He'll be there for 11 weeks before moving on. He's going to be an aircraft engine mechanic. All I can say is WOW. It was a wonderful graduation. The TI's really do alot in the short time they have. Those young men and women were really squared away. The wife and I are so proud of him. God be with all of our troops. amen :patriot: BTW, Don't forget Aug 1st. is Air Force Day

    That's great. I didn't see it then, but they do change you (for the better)in a short time. I was there in '92.
    Congrats to your son and God bless him and keep him safe!
