"My son finishes in March also. He never talks much about studying though. I know he passed the first 2 tests he took, after that...not sure what's up? He went out last weekend....Liberty and stayed over night at a hotel with a…"
I can't speak for everyone else, but I know my son has done that a time or two since July 2010. I wouldn't be overly concerned YET. I usually leave a message for my son that if he doesn't call me I am going to…"
"Good morning everyone! Well, yesterday was a sad day. Most of our sailors had to go back to GL. Remember how I said I was just going to drop my son at the airport and leave? Well, my son was getting his stuff out of my trunk and an…"

Hi, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group! Your son is going into a great field of work with lots of schooling on the front end. Expect him to spend a year in GL (give or take days) and then he will move to another state for his C school. ETs often will receive their ship orders when they get their C school orders so often they know they future earlier than the FCs. Our son is an FC and his father was as well, after almost two years of school - he is stationed in Hawaii and is on his first deployment now. All seems to be good!
