I cannot believe the culmination of several years of hard work has now come to an end. If you are new here you might be interested in reading here the "early" years of James deciding on the military and how it came to be.
Now, all that hard work has paid off and he will be flying the straight C-130 stationed at Pope AFB, North Carolina. Training will take place in Little Rock, Arkansas. Everyone in their two squadrons got the straight C-130. There weren't any spec op planes to be had. The men were told if they had a desire for spec ops to let it be known once they arrive at their base where they will be stationed. Then as the opportunity presents itself they can move into spec ops. He seems very contented with the decision and for that we are grateful. I think it very interesting that there weren't any spec op planes available. We are resting that the Lord has placed James right where He desires him to be at this particular time. One of his roommates will go to Pope AFB along with James and the other roommate will stay at Little Rock.
Now, the next big event is to actually get those wings pinned on! Next week! Yea!!
