Hello jchecstnut. I live in Terrytown right on the parade route. I ookfarward to the weekend parades to video and sent to my Culinary Specialist son in Japan on the USS George Washington. Was ablt to be here for some of Mardi Gras last year. Thought he might just miss it a little bit so thought I'd send Mardi Gras to him.
Welcome to the group, you'll find lots of support and if you have any questions you're bound to fine someone that has had the experience and can helphink a question is silly.. If so I have to be in the lead.
Where will he be going after school? So many decisions they have for our young people it's almost an overload!! But, the sights and experiences will be wonderful!!!
Have a super wonderful weekend, keep in touch.
Thank you for responding Leigh,
My son is taking mechanical engineering at LSU, after college he wants to go into aviation. But like you mention so many decisions, and who knows he may change his major... i'm hoping that he won't. The experience he recieved the 4 years of NJROTC at Brother Martin had really help him at Southern. It wasn't as much as an adjustment like some of the others. My father served in the Navy for 4 years and was a cook..LOL back then they didn't call them Culinary Specialist...
Good Luck to your son.
Keep in touch
