My husband graduates 2/11/11. I don't need his ribbon for graduation, but I would love to have one for scrapbooking purposes. Please let me know how much it costs and how to get the money to you and I will ASAP. Thanks!
You can just put josh or joshua on my ribbon. My son and I have different last names. His let me see can I be nice...no I really can't when speaking about his biological doner. he now..gets a name sake and the man who has been his father...well I gave him a daughter....best I could do...lol. He is in Divison 069 too if you do that or the PIR date...it doesn't matter to me. :) I will be perfectly happy and I think they look GREAT!
Hey there! So how long did it take you to take your hubbies address? I would love to send my daughter a card for Christmas. Tried the recruiter today but they said they didn't have a address yet. Other mom's are getting them and they left at the same time as my daughter. Hope you're doing okay! Praying for you and your family! Hugs
My son left on the 6th from Houston, I too got a very quick phone call at 1:30am to say he was getting ready to mail "the box" and would call again in about 3 weeks. I pray that I hear from him before then.
