I am tempted to give him the one I carried when he was born actually and maybe a new one, one of the orange ones. He has the older green handled CE. Got some time to think about it.
I really enjoyed reading your story Mark, and am thankful for your son's commitment to serve. It would be tough to choose a good time to give him the knife that "grew up with him". If not now, then when he retires from service, gets married, or has his own children (to be passed down again).
Are there any regulations as far as what he can carry when he is in the Air Force? I think something that would be useful to him and also something he wouldn't be afraid to use (not a crazy limited sprint run). Then really lay one on him later, when he gets a promotion or something.
Thanks again for a great thread. I look forward to doing something like this for my someday children!
