Proud Dad Cries Tears Of Joy When Son Graduates Military School

A proud dad fought back tears of joy when he gave his son an emotional hug after he graduated from military school. Yusuf Muhammad, 59, welled up as he embraced his son, Khalid, following his graduation from the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia – only the second time Khalid had ever seen his dad cry. Khalid has always been interested in military service from a young age, having enrolled with the Young Marines when he was eight years old, and later being part of the Navy Sea Cadets. As he grew older, Khalid wanted to undertake the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program in college, Yusuf said, and he eventually opted to study at the Virginia Military Institute. The four-year journey to graduation was tough, Yusuf said, with Khalid eventually being commissioned into the army and sworn in as a second lieutenant.
