My youngest son, who's in the Navy and is on his way home from his second deployment, recently received confirmation that he's been accepted to Top Gun School. And  yes, it's just about the same as in the movie! He's very excited, and I'm very proud. He's worked hard toward this goal and it's nice to be recognized and rewarded.

ALSO, they had a farewell dinner last night for the 7 officers who are leaving the squadron. As part of the entertainment they listed 10 things for each person that the squadron would miss about them once they were gone. My son said the #1 thing mentioned was all the baked goodies that I made and sent to his squadron during their deployments. I laughed until I cried when I heard that. Just want to share with my fellow bakers and thank you for some of the recipes I used in my care packages!!!

Verlee you sure do have something to be proud of and enjoy the bragging rights.
I am sure you kept a group of young (and maybe some not quite so young) going with your care packages. I would like to think they all had to run a few extra laps just because of the packages you sent.

Please give yourself a pat on the back for doing a great job.

Verlee,  How Awesome!!  Wow!!  You have every right to brag. How great
that he is going to go to Top Gun School. No wonder he is going to be in
San Diego for a couple of years. You will be able to see him more often.
How wonderful to hear that your care packages were number one.  We are
all proud of you and your son. Congratulations to the proud Mom and Son!!

Congratulations!  I know that is a great honor for your son and for you.  It is so wonderful to see our kids accomplish things.  Also, it is wonderful that all your hard work baking and sending those care packages was recognized and appreciated.
