Hi dragonfly. Our son graduated July 2nd from his MOS...Satellite Communications(Ft. Gordon, Georgia) Yes! He is very excited! He has been home for a bit after graduation and will fly over on Saturday. We will miss him terribly, but being a Marine has been a dream. So glad we have Skype and cell phones!

Hi.  In one of my letters my son said that the plt that wins gets a phone call home and an extra week at Camp Pendelton.  Is your son in the plt that won?!
