82nd Air.

He was in it for the thrill of jumping and getting away from the usual father-son conflicts, but he came away with a greater sense of self, of his capabilities and strengths.

His service made it possible for us to get a VA mortgage for the house. I doubt he was thinking about that when he was seventeen, but I'll always be grateful for his leap of faith.
