    It's a sad day for me today but a Proud 1 Also

    My boy ..who is now a man ...has just left for his 3 Months of basic training in our Armed Force's :clap

    So now i can sleep easy knowing that a Man the caliber of my Son is now going to be on Watch

    Zachary My son ....I love you and you have made me proud :cry

    Gunna miss ya mate


    He loved his motorbike's ..he started riding at the age of 3 on a peewee 50
    he rode till he was 10 yrs old and raced a few times

    When he was 10 he found out about the Airforce and what he could become ...so the bikes went on the back burner and he then joined the cadets at 13 ..he has loved it ever since

    He shall be doing 3 months of Basic ,,,then back home for a week then of again to do his Diesel Engineering trade in the Army ..in 2.5 yrs he will change over to the Airforce and do his Aircraft Engineering trade

    My son is About to Embark on the Rest of his life
    Plz Wish him well

    he will be reading this thread as he's a lurker :evil

    Well done Sean and Zachary

    Being a proud father is one great aspect of the job!

    Enjoy your time in the Armed Forces Zach, it sounds as if you have a loving, supportive father at your back.

    Sounds like the lad has had some positive motovation from his Dad :clap............I'm in aviation and ex-military, he will never look back after doing his aircraft engineering along with the diesel background. Just don't let the Army talk him into staying with them.
    LAME = $$$$$ = toys and a great life style.
    Hopefully my eldest lad will take a similar route. :D

    :clap:clap:clap Yeah, sometimes they can be little turds when they're growing up, but when they do grow up and do things like your son has done, there's nothing else that can make you feel so proud. Give yourself some credit too, he didn't turn out that good without a guiding hand.
    Ya both done good:clap

    G'day Sean-O,
    As you know, my little girls think you're funny as!
    When you came around that day I thought that you were a top bloke, and in that short time that we spoke over a beer you did talk about your son.
    I could feel the pride then. And rightly so.

    Congratulations to you as a family for achieving a great result in bringing up a fine young man. :clap

    Cheers,
    Rob
