During the mid-1980’s, while on active duty in the U.S. Navy being stationed in Norfolk, VA, I mentored youth at the local schools and served as the children and youth Sunday school teacher in the local church.  2000 - 2003 while stationed at Wallops Island, VA I mentored youth at the local school and in the community. June 2005 when my youngest son 13th birthday came about I pondered upon his celebration, what came to mind was the Jewish youth and their Bar (boy)/Bat (girl) Mitzvah, an adult rite of passage; no, this is not an adult rite to drink alcohol, smoke, vote, etc. but a rite into moral and spiritual maturity; so in 2007 I began teaching the youth in my local church and in the community "Manners" and formulated this plan:
