Our son reports to Great Lakes today. Leaving him last night at MEPS in Columbia, SC was so hard but we kept strong until we drove away. He is making it easier on us because he is so excited. He was already enjoying meeting new guys and girls at MEPS. We are so proud of him. I cried so hard on the way back to Charleston and I couldn't get to sleep last night but I couldn't wait to thank all of you today who have given me so much information. I need to keep busy and write him and try not to focus on what he is going through tonight. Thank God for a job to be able to go to to try to keep things busy. Thanks so much and I am grateful to have all of you.
