Just heard from Evan. I get a letter once a week.(good boy!). They are fire-fighting this week, and BS21 starts next week,6-5.That would be wednesday, the 5th. He earned a Sharp-shooting ribbon, and his division 291 is doing great. Can't wait to see him in 2 weeks.
Hello, I have been out of the loop for a while - been busy at work. My son is in Ship 14, div 291. I have been getting letters from him and he sounds in good spirits. I read somewhere that some sons called their moms and got to talk for 1 hour. Lucky moms! On the day that he was allowed a long phone call he called his girlfriend. I have gotten 2 calls that were under 15 minutes and am so grateful to have gotten to talk to him. My family and I are going down on Thursday night. We are staying at the Sleep -Inn. We will be there around 7:30 that night. It sounds like there will be a get together of the families that have PIR on 9/14 that night. Do you know where it is and times? Also sounds like I should order ribbons from Mama Lama. I will check out her website/facebook next. We are bringing 7 of us - Mom, Dad, 2 sisters, girlfriend, grandma & grandpa. I realize 3 might not all get in, but we will at least get to see him after graduation. Can you help me with how I can follow along on the schedule for training? That sounds very interesting. Then I can ask my son questions about it - cause he is good about answering questions but not so good at letting us know what is coming up. This site has a ton of information and helpful - but I am confused by all the groups. I hope I am in the right one.
