Today (February 21, 2018) my just turned 18 year old son reported to MEPS for his delayed entry processing. He was escorted down to Baltimore yesterday by his recruiter and 2 other recruits. They checked into the hotel about 4. He was excited to meet new female friend at the hotel who was also going to be processed. They went to the mall and walked around, got a bite to eat, before returning back to the hotel. He text me this morning about 4am, said that he was going to get a shower, eat breakfast and the shuttle was leaving at 5am. He would fill me in on everything tonight when he returned home.
Because he is delayed entry, he will return home and not receive a ship date until after high school graduation. I have been a bit anxious all day waiting to hear from him, but haven't dared texted other then first thing this morning before they left. Hoping all goes well, he had to lose a few pounds before they would let him go to MEPS so I am hoping he didn't eat a big dinner. :-)
