"Oh! To those who have SRs in 349 who didn't get a call: my son said that everyone in 349 passed Battle Stations and are now sailors. He wasn't sure about the brother division 350, but he was sure about 349. Hope this helps ease the…"
My son is Alex from Kentucky. He is 20 years old. I am so glad that I have this site. I miss him terribly. I know that he is in good hands, but that doesn't stop me from missing him. I can't wait until Oct. 26. I hope that we can meet.
