Hi Rob. I don't know if we will make it the night before in time for the meet and greet but we are planning on trying to. There will be three of us. My husband, my son the SR's fiancee' and myself. I will look for you. Our son goes to Nuke school in the middel of the night after graduation so we are a little disappointed about not getting the whole weekend with him. Battle stations our son says is today the 16th. Really praying for him and the division today! Four days to go!!!!
Glad to see you are so close. We are in Twinsburg.
My son is also in Div 176. He will be going to A School in Pensacola. Where will your daughter be going after graduation?
We are driving up on the 5/19 and staying at Residence Inn. I sure hope we get to spend time with them, we plan to stay till Sunday.
So happy to hear your daughter passed her swimming test. My son said he has passed all the test so far and had two left to take. The bed making gave him a fit :) I love it! That's the one thing he didn't prepare for before leaving.
I got a call this past Thursday and he said they would do the tear gas chamber today (Tuesday). He also said their weeks start on Wednesday. He told me so much more but I was so happy to hear his voice, my brain went blank and everything he said was a blur.... Just 9 more days :)
