That's funny, my son spent a whole page of his last letter telling me about how much weight he lost and how different he looks....he seemed so proud of the shape he's gotten into. I didn't think he needed to change anything. But I guess we love 'em no matter what.
If I was told correctly by Drew, they did 3 graduations, so today would be their first one. I could have heard wrong but I think that's what he told me. I'm thinking of them and will be sure to check FB!
Diana, doesn't he carry center stick or something like that? There's one photo; I'm almost sure it's their division. It's the 8th picture, maybe I'm just hoping that's them but it's all male and I'm pretty sure I can spot Drew but it could be wishful thinking- check it out, you too Tammy!
Were you talking about the one that had them all lined in up a big row? I thought I saw a couple females at the end - but it was the 9th picture. Charlie wears BCG's so at least I could narrow it down.....I'm trying to find a way to zoom in on the pictures to be sure.
Diana, it's the one that has 2 comments underneath it; one says "Welcome A Board Sailors" and the second one says "Congratulations Sailors"- I had Drew's parents look at the pictures and they can see him too so this has to be their division, I hope you find him- it's like having a sneak peek! I love it! Make it your background on your computer and you can see it better.
