I went digging for pictures after this boy's promotion the other day. I didn't remember how young he was when he joined CAP. I certainly didn't remember how young he looked. He promoted from Airman to Chief in a little over 2 years and just took over command at the Yokota Squadron as their Superintendent. I had to look all of that up because I am still clueless about how it all works. I only know to show up with my camera and stifle my sobs in the corner every time I am invited to an event. He makes us so, so proud.
Ooph. Hug your boys, Mamas. They turn into young men way too quick.
We talked this chucklehead into joining, too. It'll be interesting to watch.
