About oh... sometime last summer, my son (then 17) came to me and said, "Dad... I want to be a Nuc. Eng. Officer on a sub." I looked him square in the eye and said, "What? Are you stupid???"
And then I told him that I couldn't be more proud if he did something like that... and I told him - he gets his commission, I'll be the first to salute him.
Best chow I had in the service was at the sub base @ Pearl.
