Kenneth Joins the Army

March 17, 2009 my son Ken joined the Army. I wasn’t excited about his choice to enlist in the Army, especially being in his thirties. It was great visiting him and having him share the benefits as he sees them. Ken has a great attitude and will be an asset to all he serves with and for. kens-family0309He will be in basic and advanced training to be an air traffic controller for over five months and then when he gets his assignment his wife, Heidi and children, Blake, Cathryn, and James can join him. Thinking about Heidi taking care of the kids while Ken is away reminds me of when my kids father worked on the Alaska Pipeline for two seasons and was gone for many months.
