Hey Momk! No I haven't heard that. I thought they always left the next morning. Gosh I hope that is not true. I will try to find out from my son and let you know. He has supposedly sent me part 1 of a two part letter. Amberrose got her part yesterday but I didn't get mind. I am hopeful it will come today though. Take Care,LisaRobin
Good Morning momk! My son actually signed a contract for a specific job and had to wait almost a year to go in. If your daughter didn't sign for a specific job, then she will most likely be deployed after bootcamp. She will get 3 weeks I think to come see you though. Don't quote me that is just what I have heard from some from home that has gone in before my son.
Trust Me! I did not know what I was doing at first! I have been on this site since March. Way before my son went in. It has been good for me as I am a planner and a preparer even though my son is not. I would find out things and try to tell him or warn him and he was like...I don't want to know! So, I gave up telling him but learned on my own anyway. It has come in handy alot of times. These girls (and sometimes guys) will be your friend and will help you through it. I am not a FaceBook or My Space person so this was all new to me.
Hello New Friend! :-) My fiance and your daughter are in the same division! It is so wonderful to meet others that have loved ones in the same division! My future MIL, lisarobin, is also on the site - so please friend her too! Here is the link again for the PIR 08/05/2011 Group - a centralized location for all of us that have loved ones graduating August 5th to connect and to get to know each other. Started a discussion about our division, but until today...didn't really know anyone else except for lisarobin! :-)
