Relay my congratulations to him.

DLI or Naval Postgraduate School?

He's in the post graduate school getting his Masters in physics. When he finishes there he is headed to the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland to teach physics for three years, then he will go back to flying Cobra's, or least that's the plan. He had wanted to go to China Lake instead of Annapolis as he wants to get into weapons development and testing. His bachelors is in mechanical engineering.

Weapons development and testing, sounds like fun shooting is in the family. I congratulate and salute your son, you, and your family. I'm sure you are proud of him. Thank you.
