This past week, I headed off to Virginia for my son Joshua’s AIT Graduation. For those that are not familiar with army terms, AIT is the school where they learn their job in the army. It was so great seeing him. It was also mice taking a trip down memory lane. Fort Eustis was our first duty station, and we lived there from 1991-1993. It was interesting to see what had changed, and what had stayed the same since we left so long ago.
Before the ceremony, they were given a pep talk about their future in army aviation.
Joshua was the first to receive his diploma, as the Distinguished Honor Graduate. (Top of the class!)
We are so proud of him.

After the ceremony, Jack, Jackie and I headed out to the water and enjoyed the sunshine and fresh air while we waited for Joshua to finish up his paperwork.
Later that day, we headed to Yorktown Battlefield – and explored history.
The room where Cornwallis’ surrender was negotiated.
It was a wonderful trip. Watch the video of the graduation:
