That is a good point you make. I was lazy in HS. I did enough to get by in classes except when I had a great teacher or a subject I liked. Straight A's in History classes and C's in the others. Less than a C & I was in trouble. Just wanted to stay around Phx where I had my friends. At ASU I enjoyed college and the classes so I only made A's & B's. Of course there was the draft so I kept my grades up.
I can understand the decision your grandson made and you made. Agree that you both made the right decision at the right time. Once I got my degree, then did my 2 yrs in the Inf, I decided to work in Europe. That was my time to see the things I had read about in the History books.
