It was touching to see these young people take the oath knowing they are enlisting during non-peaceful times. I was proud to be there that night and I'm proud of Ron. It was in 1981 when Ron went to a recruiting station in St. Louis (In the same Battalion he now commands) and signed his papers.

Ron and his staff take the field right before the oath.
These are young faces. It is my prayer that these recruits will stay safe and learn leadership skills that they will use for a lifetime.
There is our group...up there waving!
Ron and Lucey getting ready for the game to start.
We decided to have a bite to eat first and then go sit in our seats outside. The food was delicious and Lucey ate a lot!
"I'm taking a little break while my tummy settles from all that good food."
Andrew joins us for some cookies and a hug.
Lucey was having fun walking around, climbing on the railing and swinging from the dividing bar. Do I have a future gymnast?
We invited Mom and Dad to join us. I'm so happy they could share this event with us. Father's Day was two days later and I could not be with my Dad for that so this was the next best thing. Right Dad? Besides....The cards won 10-5!!! Go Cards!!!
