  1. I love this. Thank you for sharing. I is okay for kids to dream, set goals, and see the future. Even if it is a navy program, this is very worthwhile.

  2. Always great to see opportunities for kids like this—even, as Rob says, if it's a Navy program, LOL! ;-)

    1. Lol... what's wrong with the NAVY?! ;) YES... a great opportunity.


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
