My son was due to leave for boot camp in September but received a call from his recruiter saying they had an earlier opening, but he would have to leave in one week, April 10, 2013! I know this time would come, but I thought I still had 5 more months not 1 week!!! Anyone else have a recruit that will be leaving on April 10th? Also, anyone have any advice for me or my son? Thanks, Deb
We had a very similar situation in that our son was to leave in August but when the position he truly was hoping for became available it was for an earlier departure- in 1 week! I felt awful until I read Shante's note saying she and her family had 24 hours notice!! I could not even imagine, it was hard enough with a few days notice. But we all make it thru and our sons and daughters will be fine! Stay strong!!
Thank you Laura! How true...poor Shante had 24 hours and we had one full week.We really packed a lot into the week too! I truly miss him, but I am so looking forward to the man that I am going to see in June at his graduation. Thanks again. Debbie
