I'm sure this has been a difficult week full of emotion for you. I've been thinking about that first week when my son is gone and how I will handle it. Hugs to you. I work in STL too (CWE) and live about 20 miles south in Jefferson Co. My son is 21 also (I have a 20yr old son too). He does not leave for boot until February, but is hoping for an earlier date. I admire your stamina for the daily drive! I complain regularly about my 30 minute commute, I will stop that now.
Oh, my, what a lot of driving. Let me know if you need anything during bootcamp. I was prepared for the "sailor in the box" thanks to this site. That was over 3 years ago, and our sailor just re-enlisted!
