The letter finally arrived today! My heart is so happy! It is the form letter, but I was thrilled to find a personal letter written by my son on the back. My SR says all is well and he's still very happy with his decision to join. He says the RDC's are tough on them, but they need it (his words). He thinks the galley food is "pretty good." He seems happy, so that makes me beyond happy! I hope other moms received a note from their SR too. It definitely relieves some of they worry.
