Hi again, YES, I'd love to get together and it'd be fun to visit with someone whose son is in the same program. I'm also an empty-nester as he's also my youngest. Definitely been an adjustment......still working on it and he left in 2009. :o(
I'm your neighbor......off of Hwy 290 and FM 973 near Manor......the photo's from RSS came from my son who got them from some of the instructors and fellow students who took pics during that time. How exciting your son does his first helo jump today! YAY!! My son had FRAC in San Diego....he was Romeo. Is your son Romeo?
Hi there! Very excited for you guys on your son's completion of RSS....and you get to go see him? YAY! Enjoy your trip - we were there last summer and it's a very pretty place. My son has finished FRAC and comes home next week for 7 days.
Hi there! Today my son graduated from FRAC in San Diego.....so proud of him. He's waiting to hear when he goes to SERE......he knows he will be living in Norfolk. So, right now, it's a matter of being told when to go to either SERE or Norfolk. It is pretty amazing isn't it?
