Watch Out, World!

The world has officially been put on notice. NLB has joined the Air Force National Guard. His specialty: Security Forces.

Which basically means he's going to be assigned to protect stuff. And people. Important people, semi-important people, and people who think they're important.

I know he's itching to start puttin' the hurt on some bad guys. Because that's what he's been dreaming of doing pretty much all his life.

It was easy to see early on that NLB was destined for a job that included some sort of weaponry as standard equipment. He was a crack shot with his plastic and imaginary guns, although I think swords were probably his weapon of choice.

Because you know a boy can turn nearly anything into a sword. And he did.

NLB, I love you and am proud of you. I am proud that you will be serving our country. I'm very proud that you've gotten this far and against all odds, remained somewhat "normal." I'm proud that you stand up for what's right and are a good example to your nephew.

And yeah, you're a pretty good brother, too.

    I do agree that we are all very proud of NLB. He is a great brother, and a good friend. I don't know that I would go as far as normal though.
