We got our letter today!!! SO exciting! My heart is signing with joy of just knowing he is good and all is well with him!  I pray the rest of you gets yours in the next few days!! We are in Alabama by the way. And he did mention he was one of the few from the south so they like the way he talks...lol.  And he really doesn't even speak southern..lol

Got my letters (form and 1st handwritten) today!!   It was a long wait but definitely worth it.   2018 is my son's platoon....we're from KY and consider ourselves southern! ;o)    I cried to know he's doing okay and getting through...I laughed too of the variety of things he wrote about!!   It was a relief just to hear from him and "touch" him through his handwriting.   His letter was all over the place...but all positive!   My mama's heart is feeling much better!!  He is doing this!    Just put 13 letters in the mail back to him!


Guess we'll all get to know each other pretty well over the next few weeks!!   Supporting one another through this boot camp experience.    Go, Platoon 2018!   Am hoping pics of our guys make the PI Facebook page - I'm checking everyday.    The graduation pics get to me every week!    

YEA! I'm so glad for you! I know it did me good to know all is well too. My son did cover alot if topics in just a short letter too.(smile) I guess time is precious and life is quick there,,lol  Me and my daughter mailed a letter a piece today! I guess the snail mail train is about to get busy..lol

 

I am looking on the facebook page too... would be awesome to caught a glimps of them. Maybe soon!

My son is in Platoon 2018, too. We are from Kentucky. Looking forward in getting to know everyone.

Welcome! Look forward to getting to know you too!

My son is also in Platoon 2018. Hoping i am in the right group. We are from KY and we received a letter from our son on Saturday. What a blessing that was to hear he is doing good. His bunk mate is also from KY. Hope all the parents are doing well!

Hey Kymom,

 

My son is also in 2018, we are from Franklin, KY.  Where are you from.  My son also said his rack mate rode the bus from Louisville with him.  Do you know cropitkim?  She is also from KY.

Received two more letters today...begging for mail from home.   Sounding a little homesick...praying the "stack" I  mailed on Saturday arrives quickly this week.  More going out today!   Feeling his anxiousness as the "wait" becomes almost unbearable.    

 

 

I mailed a lettere everyday for the 13 weeks that my son was there! He appreciated it so much so write as often as you can. Your letters from home letting them know what is going on while they are away helps them get through this. When I got letters from my son saying he hadn't received my letters yet it broke my heart! They were just crossing in the mail though.

You are definitely in the right place. I'm so glad that you have received your first letter. It helps you breathe a little easier :-)
