Excerpt:
“This is MY son,” began his mom’s viral post, which featured a photograph of Hanson posing in his Navy uniform. “He graduated #1 in boot camp. He was awarded the USO award. He was #1 in A school. He is a gentleman who respects women. He won’t go on solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind. I VOTE. #HimToo.”

Wow! The USO award!
I don't know what is worse. That she totally misrepresented his political viewpoints or that she gushed about his achievements at boot camp!

Hey, don't diminish the honor of the "UNITED SERVICES ORGANIZATION SHIPMATE AWARD" which is presented to the graduating recruit whose enthusiasm, supportive attitude and willingness to help others during their training period exceeded Navy training standards.  Sorta like the "Miss Congeniality" of Navy boot camp.   ::)

They make a big deal about it and other awards.

I may sound like a pessimist, but I am a realist.

Of course.  Well, actually a ribbon, no medal attached.  The Navy Basic Military Training Honor Graduate Ribbon.

One is perhaps lucky to have a mother who is not technologically sophisticated.

I do.

My mother is an early childhood educator (semi-retired), so she didn't need a high level of technological sophistication. This means that I get to practice the skills she taught me about teaching with her as a very willing subject. Besides, I much prefer receiving physical letters rather than e-mail from family.
