Hi countrywoods, nice of you to respond to me. I love your pictures esp. the super cute baby!...it seems you may know a lot about d Abe so I'd like to take the time to call you one of these days or maybe we can email each other.
I'm sorry to hear that about the Plane Captain qualification. It's sad that it often comes down to whether another person does his/her part. I hope Landon doesn't feel too down about it. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you over the weekend; I have been crazy busy!
Hi, my son graduated bootcamp last October, went to A school in Pensacola for 4 weeks, and then to San Diego thinking he would be there 4 years. He was only there a week and got deployed, needless to say we were all shocked, but he seems to be doing ok.
As of now he's in the laundry room as his job is undesignated, although he will be working in Aviation eventually.
