There goes the last one...

While our twin daughter enlisted as 68W option 4 (airborne combat medic) directly after highschool, our twin son started at Kansas State on a full ride ROTC scholarship.

The girl is now at Camp Casey 10 miles from the North Korean border and doing great.

The boy did very well in his first semester but complained about the ubiquitous and liberal PC environment.

Two weeks into his semester he came home for the weekend and appeared to be quite anxious. He finally said "I need to talk to you" to which of course I answered "sure baby, what's up"?

He began his negotiation this way. "I hate college. I'm not going back and you can't make me".

He said that as a white hetero Christian conservative male who had the bad luck of growing up in an affluent and functional home with a mother and father who had been married together way before he was borne he was discriminated against daily. He said that he was required to attend classes on "inclusion" where he was told that the psycho men who dressed like women were normal and to be embraced and had to write a paper on how his "white privilege" marginalized others. In a political science class they were told that Marxism was the only real viable form of government and that Venezuela was a great country.

So he quit.

He is now at Ft. Benning in his first week of 11B OSUT. He was able to call us for about 30 seconds Sunday night to tell us that he had the Boot Camp Crud but was not going to Medical and that it was a "nightmare" there.

He will be fine but is in for a challenge. Wish him luck and send some positive waves to Georgia.

He is number four out the door and the house is without children for the first time in 30 years. FYI it has taken a little time to get used to the empty nest... Like about a day!

Cheers,

Byron
