A Reason To Celebrate


This past weekend was a memorable weekend at Westpoint. My nephew received his ring after completing his third year at the school. The "Ring Weekend" included many special festivities, the main one being the ceremony to receive their rings. What an honor this was for my nephew. I am so proud of him!!! I have learned many things regarding the rigors of life at Westpoint since he has attended this school. I am amazed at the accomplishments of these guys and girls. They definitely have won my respect through it all.



My handsome nephew is the second one on the left.


Here he is with his beautiful girlfriend, who was honored to share in this important weekend.


Here he is with three of his good friends who also participated in the ceremony. One more year to go. A major accomplishment for this young man.

What handsome young men! I am so proud of our patriots, especially those that make their way into and through the armed services.

God bless them!
