On September 11, 2007, Troy's 15th birthday, he dressed up in his ROTC uniform for the first time and walked out the door to participate in a 9/11 remembrance service at school. It sure was hard as a mama to watch him walk out knowing that is all he ever wants to do. The ROTC cadets stood at attention for 45 minutes holding the 9/11 signs while the other students arrived at school. It was such an honor for Troy to get to be a part.
Troy is in the middle line, the last tallest in his row.
