Hi there! I talked to 'jennsmom' yesterday and she still hadn't hear information from her SR as to where she is going to after Basic. Go ahead and "friend" her - she may know more today then yesterday. Did your son play baseball and is was he a "catcher"? I'm still trying to pinpoint who "Texas belongs to". It's getting close now!! Can't wai to meet everyone at the Meet & Greet!
Hello! I used to have a hard time at first on this site but now I just go to "My Page" and check out the comments on there (i.e., Meet & Greet and TG43 PIR 09/09/11.

And does he happen to go by the nickname "Texas" there?
