I sent a request to join the FB page. Just so you know my FB is DeSL Gvag. It's what I use but the name of it is for my youth group so it's weird. Thought I'd give you a heads up when you see the strange name. Have a blessed day!
This football season is very different from the last for me as well. My son, the football player, just started his first year of college in MN - playing football, we are in Cali. So after 4 years of never missing a game, both away and home, I can only watch him streamed online. I am so thankful for that. My daughter is headed to A school in Pensacola following boot camp. She's finished 2 years of college and is excited about the path this has put her on.
My name is Becky, and my sons name is Derrick. We are from Akron, OH. He did choose his job. Logistics Specialist. He wanted nuclear, but got this. Maybe he can change his MOS once he has acquired some time. What is your sons job? What is his name? I plan to send chocolate chip cookies once he hits A school. Cant wait for him to have his cell phone and laptop. Today was a little easier, hope it was for you too. We kinda ran out of tears. Have to smile and find reasons for this to be a good thing. I need to call the recruiter to ask about time after boot camp. First he was told a week, then it went to 3 days. I need to know so we know what to pay for graduation, costs for travel as well as cost to A school. ttyl becky
