I am a bit older and my son is about to graduate from George washington University and be commissioned a 2lt Aviation, US Army. I am a WP grad and my husband is a University of South Florida Grad. We met during the basic course. Our son has always been proud of the military service of both his parents. When he was smaller he was quick to tell people that only his Mom was a WP grad and thought "your mother wears Army boots" was a complement. I guess the times have changed and now it is.
I find that people seem to always assume my husband is the west point grad and FBI agent, but both my husband and my son set them straight.
Be proud of being a WPW, your kids will just make that as part of what a Mom is. Marene
As a USNA gran married to a USNA grad, I wonder why female USMA grads are ashamed of their college and service? Why would you "omit" the details of your service to your boys? Why only emphasize what dad or grandpa did? Do you emphasize that you like to cook and clean house so that the boys grow up knowing that women can not do anythign that a man can do? What is this teaching them? This seems very odd to me. Can you help me to understand why you would not tell them all that you did and that women are capable of doing??
