My daughter's last name is Merrill-James. She just goes by James though. She didn't have time to drop the Merrill so the Navy insisted she keep it since it's on her Social Security Card. LOL! That is the only place it shows up. So weird. Anyway, hope to meet you at PIR!
My day was made!! It was great to get that phone call. He is doing good. He shared some good and some sad stories with us. He also said he has a cold. He is not use to cold weather and ready to come back to Florida. But he did say it was pretty with all the fall leaves and stuff.I really miss my son. Its is hard having him leave the house but even more harder not being able to talk to him every day. It was great getting that call!!
Calls for Recruits.org would like you to know about a program for the Men and Women of our Armed Forces. I am giving away free phone cards for Recruits to use while they are in basic training to keep in touch with Family Members and Loved Ones. I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp. Please click the link above and get your new Service Member the FREE phone cards they need.
