    Default Proud Of My Son

    Wanted to share a bit about my son, as a proud dad. At 13, I enrolled him in the MMA school where I had trained. He did well in Jiu Jitsu, and loved boxing (Mike Bell, world champion was his coach). At 14 1/2 , a little over a year and a half ago, he said he wanted to muscle up, like I had in the military. Here he is about a month ago, at 15. Hard to believe what he's achieved in such a short time. This and he has a 6.0 grade average, and will have an Associates degree by the time he graduates high school, due to his dual enrollment. The kid amazes me with his tenacity and never give up attitude. He goes hard from before dawn until bedtime, either studying, lifting, playing/practicing on his school team, or at helping out Ma & Pa. On top of that, he was already proficient enough at 13 with his 9mm and his rifle. Yes, proud as can be. As a reminder, this is a 14 year old kid in the pics!

    Every right to be proud. I think I could still take him after lunch and a short nap.

    I heard the military is giving them operations away free these days. You are a Colonel after all! Don’t worry about how it sounds. The Xim and the Xer’s got ya beat!
