Happy Grad

Well thanks to John Edelmann my son Matt is in for a nice surprise when gets home in 15mins or so from school.

He worked hard and got a full Navy ROTC scholarship and will be deciding on Purdue, NC State and VA Tech for Mechanical Engineering.

Maybe the things he learns at College will help him with LR maintenance.

Not that it matters, but my vote is for NCSU. The school is military friendly, and has an amazing mech. engineering program. Besides, would he rather have a turkey sticker or a wolf sticker on the back of that fine Discovery? (Full Disclosure, I graduated from NCSU in 2007)

I made it clear the Defender was if he got in the Naval Academy . The Disco sure does ride nice! Very different to go from a Defender to a Disco.

Didn't a wise man say the other day if we were smart we would all be wheeling Discoveries.
