Thanks for the add. My son has been a bleep to the Navy so far I think. His orders were messed up while he was in A school they said he was Full Time Support and didn't have orders for him when the rest of the guys in his class got theirs. He graduated A school January 11 and sat at Great Lakes on hold. He found out around the end of January he was going to Norfolk and the Ponce. He didn't get to there until February 9th and then on the 14th they said your leaving tomorrow to go the Ponce. Now is he is just sitting around again. He is getting frustrated with the waiting around, he just wants to get to doing his job.

Thanks Linda for inviting me into your friends list. I live in Cumberland, Md sure you already know that. I'm new to this my son is just starting his 2nd week. He leaves immediately after grad to go to A school in P-cola. So I aguess he won't be home until after A school. Long time...at least in A school he can call home more often. Teresa
Hi Linda: Thought of more information you might like. When you go to the PIR they will be selling t-shirts for each division that is graduating. Each division has something to do with the design of the t-shirt.
Also if your driving it might be good to take a GPS with you so that you can find out about traffic. On the way up we did not use the toll road and we didn't sit in traffic, after we got to Great Lakes someone told Earl about the toll road, saying it would be quicker, and it would have been but there was an accident, and there was no way to get around it due to the construction, we sat behind the accident for about 2 hours. Also take dimes. Some tolls are 10 cent a mile with a toll booth every 2 or 3 miles.
After thinking there is also a "rain forest" themed resturant at Gurney Mall, they have snakes, spiders and such. They even have a petting zoo, if you want to call it that, so if Steven misses his creatures - let him go to the mall and hold them ucky spiders and lizards.
I do not know where Steven will be going to A School, but thinking towards the future you may want to prepare to send gifts to Steven. The US Postal Services has what is called a Military Pack. They will send you several boxes, tape, labels and packing slips (for going out of the country). Just call 1-800-610-8734, pick option #1, option #1, then option #2, and ask for the military pack, the first time you request it they will give you a customer number and each time that you call to get a new pack, you just use your customer number and they will send you new supplies.
I'm so excited for you.
