Hi Jana - Thanks so much for sharing your plans about dropping off your son. My son sounds very similar. He didn't want me going to MEPs or taking him out for dinner. He has since talked to his recruiter and has decided that it isn't all that out of the ordinary - other recruits do it and I promised to have him back on time. So, as of today I've gotten the ok for both dinner and he's even said he would be fine if I went down to MEPs to see him sworn in - so YAY! He doesn't ship out to BC until the end of September but I know the time is going to fly by.
I've added you as a friend - hope that is ok. Looking forward to getting to know you and supporting you through the whole experience.
