1 If they are still training in the same building complex, tell him to pay special attention to the shape of the building. Once he gets into the classified portion of his training, he'll understand what I'm talking about.

7 As a former nuke, I can tell you you should be proud. Pilots fly, marines are tough but a nuke turns matter into energy with a flick of a wrist.

8 Congrats to both you and your son.

9 As long as he learns how to defeat and skin a swamp-rabbit, he's doing better than ... certain other Naval engineers.

10 It's pronounced nuk-u-lar. I should know, I'm a power plant safety technician...!

20 Congrats! My son also just passed his final interview for Nuke School, so I know how hard it is. Is he going Carrier or Sub?

Posted by: Dreadpiratk at December 24, 2014 10:21 AM

21 Sub, it seems.

Posted by: Vinnie at December 24, 2014 05:55 PM

22 Congratulations!
First to you for raising a smart good young man.
Then to him for learning to do right.
If we ever get intelligent people running this country, we will also need nuke plant personnel.

23 Hell yeah,

You know one of these days they'll need engineers like that in space too. They will similar to subs in a way the bases and ships.

I'm thinking Ceres turns out to be a "must claim"object.

I mean in a Constellation type program there's more resources and a weaker gravity well. WE MUST HAVE IT.

Anyway, pretty cool. Sub is pretty cool "inner space"

Now if I could just impart some ambition into mine. Lets see make him sleep under on the porch in Jan... I dunno. I'm desperate with my "millenial"

Good to know yours is a go getter.

Never thought that Christians/Conservatives were big fans of Science.
