Hi, Our son is on Ship13 Div 127 too. We are looking forward to graduation and getting to see him again. We live in NC and have never been to IL. I have been trying to keep myself busy by searching flights and hotels so that I dont worry about him quite so bad. My husband reminds me that no news is good news. It was great to receive our "letter" on Monday. We miss him alot but are very, very proud of him. Hopefully we will hear from him soon!!!
We had the same problem Josiah had to go twice as well he had a tiny fracture in his left knee cap area at 13 from a dirt bike accident and we had to take him to a orthopedic surgeon to get X-rays and make sure it's healed he plays lacrosse don't think he would have been playing all these years if it wasn't healed but it was also a very stressful time I'm glad it's over and now the wait I'm glad everything worked out for dalton
