    Duane's officially signed up for the military!

    Alright long time GSers - ready to feel old? That little brother of mine - the one who wanted to be Kurt Browning for most of his childhood - graduates High School this May. This past week he took his test and physical and he's officially signed up in the Army (infantry). He heads off to bootcamp July 22 (he thinks to GA, but couldn't remember :rolleyes: ). He'll be the second in the family to be army (all the others have been Navy), it's pretty cool...

    From his "tipple-toe, tipple-toe" battle cry to "Hoo-ah!" - I guess lol

    right?! It's crazy to think it's been 7 years since Kurt Browning made me cry when he sent Duane a copy of his book (via me) with a special note inside it. Duane's not a fan of skating these days (it's not cool to be with his group of friends) but he hangs onto that book. Still had dreams of meeting Kurt...

    when he was 4 he used to have a pic of Kurt Browning in his buzz lightyear wallet.

    You know what? When he completes his Army training, he won't have to worry about whether it's hip to like skating. No one will question his coolness to his face. He could take up embroidery and it wouldn't matter.

    Good for him! There are many pluses to military service, should he stay or even if he decides to leave.
