    I just got word that my younger brother just passed his final exam and is now a Lieutenant in the United States Air Force!!

    Now he as 45 days training back here in MN then he leaves for Houston, TX for 10 months of navigation school training and then 2 weeks of P.O.W / survivor school. That he is not looking forward to. T

    My family has a deep military history and it was my dream to serve but I was too heavy and my knees too weak. No one in my family including my brother supports the current war but he knows that he has a duty to protect our homeland and he goes to work everyday with that thought in the back of his head. Next time you see a soldier in uniform or meet a vet shake their hand and tell them thank you for dedicating your time so that you can have your time in the most genuine sense of the word FREEDOM.

    If he is a navigator (air crew) .... he is going to San Antonio, not Houston. Survival is more then 2 weeks and he will be here for a lot longer then 10 months.

    Congrats

    Bah you are right its San Antonio. His CO told him 10 months and 2 weeks. He is not active duty so maybe that has something to do with it.

    ahhhh he is guard/reserve, yeah he will be here 10 months and be gone. Im in charge of all guard/reserve students before they start training and when they are done. But i'll more then likely be gone by the time he gets here.
