Hey you are getting close to graduation. Are you going? If so when you return, fill me in on what I might need to do or take etc.? I am mainly trying to decide whether or not to rent a car or just try to take Mass Transit. Let me know how it goes and what to expect if anything is different or out of the ordinary. Thanks.
Thanks for the note you wrote to me. I got the official paperwork today with my sons address and can hardly wait to sit down to write. He had written a short note on the back of the page and I was super happy to hear from him.
No I haven't received the form letters. It looks like some of the other moms have already received their box of clothes but I haven't received that yet either. I will be a week on Monday. I heard it might be two weeks before I got anything. The recruiter gave me the address so I can write and I guess I should send a phone card unless they can buy one. His recruiter thought it was ok to take more than $50 so I hope it was cause he did.
Have you received letters from your son? I was wondering if they were allowed to write home or not? I thought maybe on Sundays they might have time to do that. I have watched some of the youtube video's on bootcamp and they have also been very helpful. I know he is learning alot of useful skills and attitudes.

Thank you! EVERYTHING you wrote helps me! Today is a HAPPY day - he's with me at work studying his training booklet. He has one of the last four meeting nights with his recruiter tonight. I feel like I am on a rollercoaster... :-)
