Michelle. My son shipped out on 9/10 as well. He flew out of Atlanta with 10 others. I literally left MEPS with my other son, husband and his girlfriend and was dropped off at the airport immediately afterwards and caught a plane to go to New Orleans for my dads funeral. To say the least I am actually glad that I had that distraction of his funeral the first few days. It helped. We received his box of stuff EOD this past Friday. That brought tears to my eyes when we finally opened it. I have washed everything and put it up in his room. I have gone in his room and was quite surprised of how clean he left it. I guess he wanted to impress me. Seeing his car daily kills me. I am hoping we can take it to A school for him since it is only 6 hours away. Hang in there and if you need someone to talk to message me. My heart dropped last Thursday when I received a call from Wakkegun, IL and it was him. He needed me to overnight his license to him since the original finally showed up in the mail on Monday and he knew it but there was nothing he could do since he was shipping out. What is your sons job?
