Any others out there?
Yes. There are four of us that have been talking on FB. How are you doing? I just got three letters today from my son. I'm happy. I did pretty well for the first few weeks but it has been hitting me harder these last few days.
Lori, I felt exactly the same. He was so excited to leave and confident with his decision and I was so proud of him. I was beginning to wonder if I was normal for not getting upset. However, my emotions caught up to me a little last week. I was really down by the end of the week. And then he called on Monday and I was fine again. Now I patiently await letters or another call.
Kind of thought we might get a call today. I was vacuming with the cell phone in one pocket and the house phone in the other pocket. So I wouldn't miss it. No call. Oh well. I'm friends on FB now with Madision.
I received 1 phone call but nothing since. Has anyone else received any phone calls? I did get 2 letters so far. Is there any clue as to when their Battle Stations test will be?
This is Diana from our other group. We are almost there!!!
I received a letter from my son this week saying that Battlestations will start Tuesday (03/27). I believe it said it starts at 7:00 pm and goes to 7:00 am on the 28th. I am under the impression we should get our phone calls Wednesday sometime.
That is great to have that information!!! Fortunately, I was able to take this whole week off to get ready for the trip. I will be praying for all our boys!!!!
Thanks for the information. We will be driving into Great Lakes Thursday the 29th. I am so anxious to see my son and that ornery smile of his that makes his Mother laugh all of the time. I have missed him so much, but I am so proud of him. It stinks that we only get one day and then they're off again for another 6 weeks. But at least we can have some contact with them at A-School. I will be praying that they all pass their Battle Stations. Good Luck to all of your recruits and I will see you all at graduation.
Thanks for the information on Battlestations. today would be Captains Cup. I wonder how that is going. We will be heading out thursday morning also. We will be driving all day. I can't wait though. Almost there.
It is now Tuesday. Battleships should be tonight! Got my blue candle ready!
