Hi Karen, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group. I see your grandson is close to finishing boot camp - you must be so excited and certainly proud of him. He may not know yet if he is assigned to the ET or FC fields but both are great rates with lots of schooling on the front end. Expect him to spend about a year in GL and then he will move to another state for C school. That school location and length will be determined at the end of his A school. Our group is a busy one - stop by often and welcome!
