I rarely get on this website since son has graduated boot camp &, more recently, A school. He did graduate after Battlestations. He didn't have a ceremony, just received his cap but he was ready to go. It took a few weeks to finally get to A school. He graduated from there about 2 wks ago. He's here in Texas on leave but leaves Friday for Norfolk VA & C school.
Keep your chin up. Write, write, write and then, write again. I wrote & mailed something every single day. That included news, sports info, jokes. Didn't send anything too long, just about one page.
You will find this site very helpful and full of members who are eager to answer your questions. Browse around the site and check out the forums, groups, blogs, photos, videos, and even the other member profiles!
