Civil Air Patrol

First time ever wearing his BDU's to a meeting.... doesn't he look sharp? Of course they told him that his collar was not ironed properly and there were six 'strings hanging' from various places and needed to be cut off! I am still proud of him - collar, strings and all! The only help he received from me was to sew on the badges! He even measured them for placement. He officially has his first rank now and is looking forward to learning and doing more...
His friend complimented him on his rolled sleeves, I guess there is an art to it! In a couple of weeks will be 'Blues' night... no, not Jazz!.... dress uniform! The only reason he consented to pose for this photo was his mother's imploring to keep a memory and to show Drew and Chris! Maybe I can use the same tactics to capture a picture in his blues....
