This is one of those times when a personal post is mandatory. These are the pictures from boot camp graduation at Great Lakes Naval Station on Friday.
My 19 year old grandson Tyler was among the graduates. My daughter, son-in-law and Tyler's girlfriend Courtney went up there for the big event.
(You can probably catch more about this ceremony at Mean Ol' Meany - Paul's son was there too!)
I think Tyler was trying to look tough in the picture with his parents, so I put one of him and little brother Cody so you can see what he really looks like. Needless to say, I'm a proud grandpa.
