He found the mustache obnoxious, itchy, and prone to food entrapment. To say nothing of enduring the comments from the female peanut gallery here at home. When you are surrounded by 5 opinionated sisters, things can get rough.
This week, we received our son’s official drill portrait via email. Makes me want to jump up and sing the National Anthem. Off-key and properly social distanced, of course.
Michael loves being part of his school’s Army JrROTC precision drill team. These boys practice throughout the year, most of them waking before 6:00am and arriving by 6:30am. They drill in the morning before school and, during competition season, for 8 hours on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday. They are really, really good. In fact, they are one of the top teams in the nation.
