I would love that info! Thank you!

Hey Dorothy,

Unfortunately, for security reasons, we are not allowed to forward any FRO emails or share homecoming information over the internet. If you need information, I suggest calling the FRO directly to see if he can verify who you are and give you that information. I can message you the FRO's contact info, if you'd like that. Good luck!

Hi- son is in 3/9..and I am not on any FRO lists (he's 20, and clearly didn't think to hook me up!). Does anyone have any info on homecoming logistics? An email they can forward? I'm heading to NC for it but am currently winging it..any info/advice would be great! Thank you!

My belongs to weapons company/CAAT platoon. I was wondering if any if your sons belong to that group as well. I am new to this site and am trying to figure it out-

If anyone needs a laugh, this is one of my favorite spirit lifters :)

catherine55, only if they took a laptop with them. However there may be secret laptops or phones for their use.  The time they have is limited when they are communicating home

Request was made for pillows and blankets, it is going to get real cold where they are
