Well, hows everyone doing after almost a week? I've heard a lot of you have received boxes but, I'm still waiting. I have been writing a lot of letters and am anxious to receive his address! I find keeping busy helps with the occasional meltdown. I suppose when I hear from him and his letters have a positive tone, that may be just what I need. Stay strong everyone. I do have a question. We've heard 4 is the graduation ticket limit. If someone can't come on his list and we have several others that want to attend, can they get in if their name is not on a list?
This has been the longest week ever. It feels like my daughter Lyndsey has been gone forever, and she just left on Monday, 7/1. I keep reading that some already received their box and know the division number, but I haven't gotten anything except that last phone call. I called the recruiter on Friday to see if he had the address, but he didn't. He said he will call me on Monday with the information. I have three letters ready to be mailed to her. This is pure agony. I keep telling myself to stop thinking of myself because what she is going through is a million times worse. I am very proud of her but I just want someone that is with her to be able to tell me she is fine and following the routine.
