A Message From The X.O.

As his oldest son, I qualify to be Kernal Ken's X.O. (executive officer) And because I am his X.O., I am publishing to his BLOG without his knowledge. (We'll see how long that lasts.) I wanted to inform everyone about his attitude and mood since he learned about his prognosis.

After dealing with multiple needles, scans, and a variety of great doctors, Kernal Ken said, "The chemo and radiation treatment is going to last about 8 weeks. It's going to be difficult but it can't be more difficult than my 8 weeks in Ranger School. During Ranger School, the instructors were trying kill me. During my treatment everyone will be trying to help me. " He then said, "This cancer is ugly but it's not as big and ugly as I am."

I hope this provides you all a bit of insight into Kernal Ken. Rangers lead the way!

Thanks for everyone's kind wishes.
-Chris

Hee hee. You sneaky big brother of mine! If you're the XO, what does that make me? No matter - as long as it helps dad, I'll be it. Love, S.

Somehow, Chris confused "Executor of my estate" with Executive Officer.

There's got be some article in the UCMJ which covers assumption of office to which not appointed.

However, his thoughts show no intent to use his usurped position for personal gain, so I'll let it slide this time.

Perhaps I'll make Spymommy my operations officer, thus relegating Chris back to the motor pool.

We'll see...

See, now that sounds just like Ken to me!

As for Chris, you could always send him out for guard duty, let him schlep around in the cold, dark rain or snow...
