Hi, I noticed that you have changed your Username so that it no longer contains your last name; you still need to change the URL to this Page so that it doesn't include your name. See number 2 in OPSEC and PERSEC within Boot Camp Moms to tell you how to do that and how to make other changes that you may want to consider. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
I asked his recruiter and the information I gave you is what the recruiter told me. This will be William's first Thanksgiving and Christmas away from family. I can't wait to see him at PIR. We are from Las Vegas, NV, and I don't think my son has ever seen a frozen lake so I hope he adjusts to the weather up there. : )
Our sons are not allowed to come home for Christmas. The Navy has a program in which families from Chicago "adopt" a recruit for a day (Christmas) and the recruit spends Christmas with that family. It is voluntary for the recruit.
