There's just something about little boys and their mothers. (I guess it's the same for little girls and their daddy's.) But, this week I learned something, that little Boys grow up to be men. It's a sad fact of life. And it became all too clear to me one day this week . . . My oldest son started college. College! I can not be old enough to have a child in college! Kyle is going to Western Bible College. It is a local Assemblies of God college right here in Phoenix. He wants to be a Youth Pastor.
Kyle's first day of Preschool, and first day of College.
Well, the Marines have a program called the Musician Enlistment Option Program. Zach would have to audition on Guitar to be in the Marine Corp Jazz Band. He would still be a Marine, and go through boot camp, etc., then they would send him to the Armed Forces School of Music. And after that he would be stationed at one of 12 bases that have bands. These bands play for all the ceremony's, inaugurations, etc. And during his active duty and after, the Marine Corp would help pay for his college. The recruiter told me that the bands never get called up to the front lines, but this is still very scary for a mom to think of her little boy joining the Marines. Especially during times of war.
