Good morning! Did you get a phone call on Friday? We did, but I was driving and by the time I pulled over I missed it and my husband did not have his phone on himm. I called the number back she answered but had to go she said she was safe and all was good. We felt very bad , hope they call on Thanksgiving. I heard there division won a flag for their academics they had the higest test scores! In Jasmines letters, she said her division was pretty cool. She said it is a little difficult at night when they are in their bunks because of the girl drama. She is only 18 and most of the girls are 22-28 so they complain alot abot things that are not revalnt to her. She has want this for along time too, like your son. So she does not understand w, when people complain since it was their chose to join. She said she just goes to sleep.
