Hey Sandra, my son is doing fine. He has settled in A School - Great Lakes for Hospital corspman and hopefully classes will start tomorrow. He had to stay in bootcamp until wed after graduation before he moved over so he's been taking the stress, financial classes prior to A School. Where did your son end up for a School?
Hey Sandra, The color people were discussing was Navy blue...so that's what I'm gonna wear to the MeetNGreet....I'm getting so excited...with Ty (aka Will) would call but I did receive a letter from him on Friday (dated May 30th). He was too funny...he said he can't wait to get outta the walls of RTC to eat some REAL food and see some REAL women...I was laughing...see you soon!! Safe travels.
I did get a phone call from Ty yesterday (aka Will). I asked him..hey do you know a guy by the last name of "wiggins"...he said yeah...I said..OMGOSH...I've met his Mom on N4M's site. apparently a bunch of recruits were talking aobut their Mom's being on the site, etc..and he thought it was really great. I said I plan on meeting you at the MeetNGreet. He sounded soooo much better, filled with confidence. A little nervous about an upcoming test. But all in all...it was great phone conversation. I cannot wait..I'm getting more and more xcited. He only had 5 minutes..so a lot of information was exchanged during that time...
