Son left 7/29. My heart hurts.

His mom met with his recruiter this week and his recruiter said not to worry. "RDC's tell recruites that to scare… Continue

I've been searching and can't seem to find any current (more recent than 2011) pricing information and/or links about ordering picture/dvd packages.  I want to be sure my son gets an order in with enough copies to go around - LOL!

Thanks in advance!
