Like some here know already, I took a kid from Brownsville who was the result of a rape under my wing.

Two years of HELL but I dropped him off at The National Guard Youth Challenge in Fort Dix yesterday for good after a million orientations and nearly clobbering him 2 dozen times over the past 2 years.

He will come out in five months hopefully with his GED, structure and an application to join the Guard or Army as he will turn 18 while in the “at-risk” program.

There is ALWAYS hope and that is why abortion is wrong. Well, one of the reasons.

It will cost the govt 5k a month for this program but if he pays taxes the rest of his life and doesn’t cost 25,00 a year in prison for 50 years it will have been a GREAT investment.

I know MANY here will be against the govt spending money on these kids with a national guard program.

But we can’t have it EVERY WAY.

We want them born, some of them need help early or later on.

NOT welfare. Not SNAP.

A military program to give them a shot at structure and a future to serve our country.

all I know is i am free for 5 months!!!

Then my mentoring term begins :(

That’s great. You helped this guy to chose the right path to follow. Many young people get to that point where they can start making decisions that will effect them for a long time.

Most still need a nudge in the proper direction.
Most will never again have such an opportunity to chose without being under heavy pressure. Any change equals a risk.
Life style circumstance or ongoing financial debt can make your mind up for you.
