  1. I've been lurking here on Measurection for several years now and felt compelled to add my 2 cents worth. Its probably because I was made fun of in 8th grade when I was on the football team. That led me to give up playing football, and I think I would have been pretty good, although I did play high school basketball. After 8th grade I never got made fun of again, maybe because I was pretty good sized and fully capable of taking care of myself, but once I got out of college I never put myself in the locker room situation again. I would have liked to go to a health club or a YMCA, but just never had the courage to do it. More on my story in a later post. I've got to hand it to the Lt.Col on several levels. On being able to retire at 45 and achieving Lt.Col you've been more successful at the game of life, in a financial sense, than I'm sure many of us, including myself. Having 3 children is an achievement. Putting yourself out there in the locker room with your friends and children is something I would find very hard to do. You had to have courage to achieve all these things. That's why its so very hard to understand your story. I'm not a military person but I would think that being a LC would require some ability to lead, earn the respect of, and discipline those that are under you. With the experience of 20 years in the military I don't understand how you could allow your son to disrespect you so much. At the very least you should have the ability to discipline him so that it would never ever happen again. And your lifetime friends, really? With those kind of friends who needs enemies. You made a special point to mention that you're 6'2" and 220 vs your tormentor who is 5'8" and 150 soaking wet. Come on man if that's true you should have had him pinned up against a locker and in no uncertain words told him that for his own good health that will never happen again. At the very least you should have had a very serious conversation with him conveying the same message. No disrespect intended. This just hit a chord with me.
