Nick's Graduation Pictures


Thank you to Meghann for sending these great pictures of Nick's graduation from Air Force Basic training! We had an enjoyable time visiting with him and Matthew and Meghann in San Antonio while we were at the Graduation. The graduation ceremony was held outdoors in the misting rain with a cold wind blowing on the spectators and graduates alike. We made lots of friends in the stands as we all huddled together for warmth! Here we are visiting the Alamo on a cold and windy day after the graduation ceremony. The Alamo is right in the middle of downtown San Antonio, and we were able to take Meghann and Nick down into the riverwalk too. We walked around the rivercenter as well and got coffee before proceeding down into the Riverwalk area.
We went back to the hotel and picked up Matthew for a nice dinner together and then had to leave the next morning. Nick is now stationed in Mississippi at a Naval base for Advanced Training. Nick's "flight" or unit was the Honor unit for this cycle. Congratulations, Nick!

Mmm, San Antonio. I visited there almost 30 years ago and my best memory of it was walking down the riverwalk from our hotel to a restaurant every morning to have strawberry pancakes.

Congratulations to Nick! Sounds like you had a great time despite the chill in the air.

Such a lovely family! So what is Nick's MOS going to be?

Nick's Mos is called "structural apprentice", it's physical plant type things like construction. He's actually at a Naval Base where they train the Seabees right now doing his training and having a lot of fun! :)
