Last Saturday my son, the prince, graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and was commissioned Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. So ends a journey that began when he was in sixth grade and decided that he wanted to be in the Army.
I'm not sure if he would do it again the same way if he had to do it all over, but he picked it. And despite having the opportunity to back out with no penalty during those first two miserable years, he didn't and has now joined an extremely select group of men and women. Probably THE most select group of men and women in this country.
I am extremely proud of him. You all will be too.
