I got a call today. Yea! I Donald if he was asked to change jobs and he is now ATI not AECF. He said if he didn't change, he would be on hold so long he wouldn't get to advance like he wanted. He will be working on planes on aircraft carriers. His A school will now be in Pensacola. He will still graduate 10/1, seemed better, not so down or tired, and didn't ask for addresses or any other paperwork. He didn't ask for advice before he joined, so I guess he didn't need it now, since he probably wouldn't have told me if I hadn't asked. I guess we have to let them go sometime. Talk to you later, Pastor Mom
No I have not heard anything, but the posts here have been saying the same thing. Also heard Donald's div was in trouble for something, so they weren't allowed any calls or letters. What is Pat's new rate? I am going to try to get a room at Ramada too, so maybe the boys can see each other. Let me know if you hear anything else and I will do the same. Great pics!! Sandy
It seems longer than two weeks. I haven't made travel arrangements yet, but I will do it this week. How long does it take to drive? Donald said he wasn't sure how much liberty they would get. So I will probably fly in on Thurs. afternoon then out again Sunday. Hang in there.
