A young man stopped in at school a few days ago. A former student.
He has been in the Air Force since he graduated my program, working on things he can't tell me about. Put simply... the last time he visited, he had a full time guard to make sure nothing happened to him. What he had in his head was too important to let wander around unsupervised.
Now, he is on his way to another posting, where he will work on something that requires a clearance somewhat above his previous one.
His life is turning out.... pretty good. I hope I played a small part in that, and it's why I do what I do.
