Hi Gabby's Mom, my son reported to GL 4-12-11 and I have his address, ship, and division number because he has a great recruiter who keeps us updated. (I actually stopped there Friday and he had the information as promised). When I first joined this site, I had no idea why everyone was talking about ships since BC doesn't take place on a ship! Again, completely clueless. Spend as much time as you can reading, listening, and learning to these mothers with experience, they will cry and laugh with you. Please don't hesitate to ask questions, we're all learning together!
