A couple weeks ago I had the awesome moment of pinning the Ranger Tab on my oldest son’s shoulder. It was a trip right out of the “Family Circus,” 14 hours of donut-and-coffee fueled driving one way with a van full of Mom and little brothers and sisters that wanted to see the big moment.
After listening to a congratulatory speech from General David Petraeus at Fort Benning, Georgia, and a Ranger Demonstration team treated the crowd to a first class exhibition highlighting the unbelievable skills of the Rangers, dad got the honor of pinning the coveted Ranger Tab on.
Kyle Jacob Wolfley is his name, and there isn’t a prouder dad in all the land than this old hog here. He is currently a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army undergoing Airborne training, a graduate with honors from West Point, and a man I look up to. Strong, courageous, dedicated and humble, he is a much better son than I am a father. And I stand in awe of him.
Kyle’s 9-year old brother CJ summed it up best.
“Kyle’s a Ranger. The toughest of the tough!”
