forefather, thank you for your post. Absolutely they all were spectacular people !
Thank you for reminding me. I thought about it yesterday several time, but today it slipped out of my head. Thanks again.
Echoing your sentiments- they truly are THE GREATEST GENERATION. I did a boy scout hike of the Valley Forge Battlefield yesterday. At the end, we compared the sacrifices those men and women endured at the beginning of our nation- to give us our freedom- to sacrifices of the men and women at Pearl Harbor- to ensure our freedoms continued We observed a moment of silence for them (even though it was a day early). After we were done, one of the scouts thanked me for doing that. He said his father, grandfather, and great grandfather served in different branches of the service during WWII, Vietnam, and the first Gulf War. I told him he was truly blessed to have such positive role models in his family!
THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING!
I want to say THANK YOU to my Parents generation....today, (DEC 7th) we lost 2,400 Sailors, Marines, and Solders at Pearl Harbor...this is what lead to our entry into WW11. I can not comprehend the sacrifices that generation made for our Freedom. As a Veteran, I an humbled.
I peeked on your page, MamaMarine2014 & you are saying he is going to ITB. They have more access to their phones at ITB than at MCT.
But I would still let him decide if he wanted you to foot the upgrade or if he is going to get his own.
MamaMarine2014, I would let him set the tone on that one. Especially since you never know where his PDS is going to be. Just sit tight until you have a better feel for what is what.
Well don't know what I should do about the phone then. Don't know if I will see him after SOI, before he goes to his PDS.
MamaMarine2014, You'll probably hear from your Marine about two to three times max while he's at MCT. Once he arrives at MOS, you'll hear more. Once he begin his MOS schooling, you won't hear from him every day as he'll have studying to do, but a wee bit more than MCT.
Just think it's better than boot camp communication ~ that's for sure!
