I see you have joined your PIR group; I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
Hi debi62! I have not heard from my son and am missing him and wondering about everything as well. I have only gotten his box and Form letter. I'm hoping that they were able to write last Sunday and maybe we will get a letter this week. I think we will all feel better once we get a written letter from him. A friend of ours has a son that is 3 weeks ahead of our sons and she had a call the last 2 Saturdays from him and has received multiple letters, so, I'm hoping we will be there soon too :) I'm trying to stay as busy as possible. Good luck and I hope you hear from him soon!
I totally know what you mean, Debi. I also tried to avoid being that mom, and mostly avoided this site until my son left. Then I didn't get that first phone call on the night I expected it, and I started to worry.... I suppose that's silly to worry so much, but I just need more information. This helps.
I'd like to think that our son's are friends now. :)
My son will stay in GL for A school. What does GC stand for?
