I dread not being able to talk for 8 weeks too. I plan on posting when I get the box and call. It's going to be a long 8 weeks.
my son left from Ft. Meade in Baltimore Md. on 4/4 and arrived at Great Lakes. I recieved a call from him at 2:57 am that is the last i have heard from him he is 19 years old. I also recieved his box on 4/7 haven't heard anything else yet watching the mail and sitting by the phone just in case
