My son left 4/06. I got a text saying he landed at O'Hare around 9:00pm. The call came in at 1:45am "mom I am good, expect the box soon, a letter will arrive with my address and other info, love you mom, bye". The box came exactly a week after by FedEx. The letter a couple of days after that. I've written twice. Today is his 19th day at Boot Camp. His graduation is on June 2nd. Can't wait to see him! I am so, so proud that he has made this commitment. My best to all the young men and women who have chosen this path. They all will come out better for it. Congratulations moms!
