He has officially been sworn in to the delayed entry program of the Navy.
Yes--My son's going to be a sailor for the Navy.
I can remember the day he was placed in my arms--so very little and precious. Over the years I have watched him mature, and grow into a great young man. Now I get the honor and privilege of releasing him to serve our God and Country.
Here is the video of the ceremony.
Austin is standing on the left side, back row. (You might need a tissue or two--I'm just saying.)
