    These are the kinds of programs we need to fund and expand. Not programs that just push people deeper into poverty, delinquency, crime, substance abuse. Need some tough love and opportunity to succeed.

    What a great program. But it is the work by the kids who get into it and especially the mentors who can make such a difference.

    Having mastered welding and wildland firefighting, the Army should be a snap. Aim high (oops, that's Air Force) and start working on getting some college courses and maybe you can become an officer someday, or at least a SNCO. Thanks for your service!

    And thanks to all the mentors, too!
