My son Oliver is also heading to bootcamp in Sept. He is ggoing into IT--I am very proud and can't believe that 18 years travel so fast. Thanks for contacting me. Let's keep in touch.
Paul's ship date is 09Aug10!!!!! I would assume they will be in BC together! Hopefully, that means we will get to meet in person at their graduation! I bought Paul a Navy sweatshirt the day he took his oath and he wears it as soon as it is clean! His property of US Navy t-shirt....same thing! Paul is also very proud and very excited. You are right it is HUGE what they have decided to do...very honorable! My son's rate is Aviation Electronics, Electrical and Computer Systems. They way I understand it he will choose the area he will specialize in. My son is a volunteer firefighter (loves it), and I was surprised by the field he chose, too! Take care! Cindy :D
OMG.....my son leaves for BC August 2010!!!! Congratulations, to your daughter and to your family! I am sure she is very excited!!! How old is she? My son is still a senior in HS. We are fortunate to have them home for awhile! My son's rate is AV (aviation electronics). Take care, and thanks for keeping me posted! Cindy :)
