Hello Mothers:  I don't have internet in my home right now, I'm at the local library.  So I have an interesting story.  Everyone should know about Fiasco that happening last week regarding the contractor who killed the navigation equipment in Illinois that messed up so many flights in the Midwest.  Well it messed with our CS Sailors too!.   Many were suppose to fly on Friday, 9/27/14.  Well the last of them went out this morning my son included.    However I am very proud of him.  He became like the Go-TO  sailor for he incoming sailors and the barracks at Ft. Lee.  He was corresponding who got what flight and where they were going.  Even when someone left their luggage. Seriously all on his smart phone.   These sailors should be a good team going in!  I just got a text from my son and they are on the last leg into Richmond, Va.

One of the reason he felt he to stepped up is from Bensenville, O'Hare is in our front yard.  Yesterday, I and his buddy who not in the military grab him dinner and took to him.  It was my first time seeing the USO office there.  However we ate at the tables at Star Bucks in the luggage area.   Now I am more committed to volunteer with USO when I have the time and energy.

Leach73, Yes any time. It starts at 9AM and usually we break the booths down @4-5PM. FYI, if you have never seen the ceremony of the Remembrance Table, it is quite moving. That will be done @10-10:30. Bring the boys!!!

HEY MOMS! Could really use some help at the Villa Park VFW Welcome Home Veterans event on Sept. 27. Any time you could volunteer would be greatly appreciated.

39 E. St. Charles Rd, Villa Park, from 9AM to 9PM, you can park at Willowbrook High School and take the shuttle!
