I get a phone call at 0900, and the Caller ID says "U.S. Government", so I figure that it's for me. Nope, it's a military recruiter wanting to talk to my oldest son, a Junior in high school. It's seems that the results of his ASVAB came back and he scored a 97. Now every recruiter in town is salivating over him.

Before you guys say it, I have already told him to get everything in writing. I was enlisted in the Air Force for five years.

Thanks. He hasn't decided whether he wants to enlist after high school or go ROTC through the university.

ROTC, get a good free education. Why not be an officer, if he has the ability?

You should feel very lucky.

The hyenias at my door are punk ass 16-year old boys that want my daughter's innocence, the bastards.

My guns stay extremely clean, though

That was my first thought when I saw the title: "Oh shit! The boys are coming for his daughter the poor sumbitch!" You're lucky, my fried. Give me a drooling recruiter over a teenage boy with hormones and his allowance invested in condoms anyday.

+1, I was going to say stick the barrel out the mail slot and just keep firing until the barking dies down.

ROTC!

To do otherwise, seems extremely foolish.
Good luck!
