it's official, got the form letter with 21 Oct PIR and Ship 11 Div 349 :) any others out there in same Div?
vonvon- sorry you missed the call. hopefully you will get another soon!
My son said they had personal and weapons inspections this week along with Hell Week. That's about all i know. He said some of his buddies were jealous that he got a copy of his Facebook page. I went to his page and printed it out so he could see the updates on his page.
20 more days :) can't wait!
At least your son is talking..lol I saw an earlier posting of sending the FB page- I sent my sons out a few days ago. I think thats a great idea- I'm sure your son enjoyed seeing all the comments his friends and family have been leaving him. My son and I watched sports together (single mom here..lol) Every monday I send him the newspaper highlights for football and baseball.
Philly 5- Thank You so much for the update!! Now we all must remember to keep our phones with us at all times so we don't miss our calls
Wow ... Philly5 .. THANK YOU!! My son is a man of few words. I received a letter from him the other day and he too sounded happier than he had in previous letters. He also said it was Hell week and that it really "wasn't all that Hellish". I'm SO grateful to your son for being "a writer"!! I've been trying very hard to win a photo of our division on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Yesterday I overslept and darn it if I didn't know exactly where the answer was. To add insult to injury the RTC said it was a full 30 seconds before anyone responded. Today my husband had the right answer but I quickly typed in MY wrong answer. Yea, yea .. I know I should have listened to him. :)) Had I typed his answer I still would have missed it as the winner one the person who's name was right above mine. So, I'm thinking that I'm getting closer! LOL
Philly5, the National Defense ribbon is a yellow and red ribbon that they all received because they are active duty during a time of conflict, ie Iraq and Afghanistan.
