Yay! We finally have a ship, a division, and a PIR date. Moving right along! We survived week one - 8 more to go :)Look forward to meeting other mom's experiencing the same emotions, concerns and excitement!
Yeah, got a letter today! My daughter seems stressed out, but also excited... if that makes sense. She says the food is good, and time is passing pretty quickly.
That's nice that there are families who will adopt them for Thanksgiving. I was wondering what they would do.
I don't know when they fly out, but my daughter will also be going to San Antonio. ( She wrote that there are other HM's in her division.) We feel very lucky because we are only a few hours from San Antonio. Where are you from?
Thank you!!! She did not say anything... so they all passed? She is freaking out about is not passing her PRT (the running portion) and pretty worried about it. Do you know when they earned the flag?
I was thinking the same thing about Christmas... let them be off and let them come home. Hopefully they do not make them hold over in Great Lakes until after the holidays. Thanksgiving with out her will be hard but Christmas too??? I really hope they are allowed liberty.
Tory'sMom---he talked like it was the first part of the week he know is going into handguns and firearms--he was worried about that....told him he would be fine. He also said he / his friend was chosen to be Ship Staff---worried me so I called his recruiter---he said that is a good thing---it's a leadership role....was worrited when he said him and his friend was asked thought maybe he was in trouble....glad he wasn't...
Not sure about Xmas but, I want to have him home for xmas..
