Looking to conect with other families of sons/daughters/love ones leaving for bootcamp March 1st. My son has MEPS on the 28th of February and swears in/departs from St Louis to Chicago (Great Lakes)…Continue
My daughter, Whitney is in DIV 147. I will check out the scarf you mentioned on LL Bean....I am so counting down the days and praying for a phone call next week. I received my first letter on Wednesday. It was a tough one to read but she was very positive. Thanks for all the info and this is a neat site.
Sherri: You need to change your group name back to 4/29 or 5/6/11. Quickly! It will confuse ladies otherwise with two 4/22 groups. Then....please go on it and ask ladies if two would be willing to be administrators. I left more instructions for you on the original 4/22/11 board...and I'm sure Jessica will be in touch. The administrators who volunteer to run your group have all the powers that you do....but they can't put their picture icon at the top (nor can you delete yours or the group goes!). Look at what I did on the PIR 3/4/11 group....I started it, but since I wasn't in it, I gave administrative abilities to two ladies. Message me if you need more help!
Hi Sherri, thanks for the shout. Halston is in Ship 3 USS Hopper - Division 149. Not quite sure how to do all this. Do we say just the Division number or the whole thing? Hope your doing good, where are you from?
