My nephew - Andy


This is my nephew, Andy. He will be leaving tomorrow to head off to basic training in the army. He has loved airplanes ever since he was young. We have video's of him being around 3 or 4 years old, getting airplanes as gifts. He will be enlisting and getting training in aviation mechanics and eventually learning to fly. As much as our family will miss him - South Carolina and Virginia are a long way away from Michigan - we are extremely proud of his decision to serve our country. I have always been proud of our military and supported them wholeheartedly, but even more so now! Andy, we'll miss you but look forward to seeing you at Christmas!
