My Jay left for bootcamp Monday, May 7, 2012. We went to the MEPS center to see him swear in and sign his contract. It was soo emotional, but even though our eyes were filled with tears, our hearts were filled with sooo much pride. I still haven't stepped foot into his room. He called at 8:00 last night when they landed in Chicago. They were eating before checking in. We talked a little about how his flight was since it was his first time flying. Just chit chat.
He made his last call to me at 11:15PM. All that was said, was, "hey mom. I'm here. I have only a few seconds, so I'll call you in about 3 weeks." I just said, "OK, I love you, be safe" That was it..........the whole time I could hear a female voice yelling, "time up!" Ugh!!!! and it begins........................
