    AN INTERESTING HOMESCHOOL PROJECT Build your own shoulder-fired SAM.

    John Armellino, 8, and his brother Paul, 6, preferred the life-size models of shoulder-fired missiles, a dream for any young man. Their mom used the event as a field trip.

    “I home school them, and (John) has a technological mind,” said mom Camille Armellino. “He wants to know how everything works.”

    Your title, “An Interesting Homeschool Project” implies that I would have my child build a weapon. Other than stirring the pot, I am not sure what your intent was when writing the title. It is quite malicious considering you know nothing about my family.

    My husband is an officer in the USMC. My children are very interested in their father’s career. My son John wants to know how everything works, including the weapons that could protect his father from harm.

    As a mother my first obligation is to protect my children. If seeing how a weapon works enables my child to sleep better at night when his father is deployed then we will attend a weapons show.

    I am not exactly sure who you are and why you felt the need to judge what I do with my children so I am sure you will understand when I say that your comment is out of line and mean spirited.

    No disrespect meant. The title was a play on the reporter’s comment that a SAM was “a dream for any young man.”
