    My oldest son has some interest in getting a ham radio license, he is a Captain in the Army stationed at Ft. Carson(Colorado Springs) He and my dad were close and I think he would be honored to carry my dad's call sign forward. I had kicked around the idea of taking my dad's call but I have been WA3TVH so long that it would be like me changing my name now. He would have no problem passing any of the tests.
