Mary no problem the computer is easier to use on this sight. Sometimes I use my Kindle or phone. My husband is always on computer for work lol. Welcome to the roller coaster ride called boot camp! Anytime you want to talk we are all here!:)
Thanks Navy mom 49! I didn't think I would have a hard time with this but today I really missed him. Hopefully I will get his letter soon and can let you know what ship and division he is in. Nice to know someone else with an SR there with mine.
Our recruiter was not very good/informative. We did not have very good info and he actually got the kids to MEPS late and they almost didn't get to ship. Yes we were at the berto center. Such a cool ceremony. Graduation will be amazing!
They probably do. Tim said there were three from his office and two from crystal lake. My name is Kris. This all happened to fast. Tims date was moved up from august 26. A mother mom said they get a pizza party half way through with the bulls. Had yo heard that?
Sorry if you get this twice! I am still learning how to use the site. I got his box yesterday. I am now traveling for spring break so not sure if the letter came. I will be back on Thursday. Tim went to the recruiting office in carpentersville.
