The Call I Have Been Waiting For
The call I just received from our oldest son Braden Wuerch puts everything in perspective and makes anything I deal with in my day seem small in comparison when I think about having to handle real time challenges. He woke up at 0300 this morning to have his first jump at Airborne Training at Fort Benning so I’ve been waiting to see my phone ring with his name all day! He just called to tell me about his 2 “successful” jumps at only 1300 feet where he has only 6 seconds to pull his shoot because there is only 12 seconds from that low altitude between the plane and ground!
Hearing him talk about the experience, his excitement and passion, made me an incredibly proud father to know he’s carrying out his purpose in life. He’s up again at 0300 for a dawn jump and then a late night jump at 1300 feet tomorrow night. There is nothing like the feeling that being “on purpose” can bring to a leader in life. — with Braden Wuerch at Fort Benning.
