My son shipped to great lakes today. I have gotten a chance to speak to him and know has checked in with the naval liason at ohare airport. I have heard from others on here and other people that the next contact will be just to say I am here. I don't have an address to write yet. i have been told that comes later in the first week . Emotions ran the full spectrum today and still dealing with some. Nine weeks really goes by fast everyone says. I sent my son to the navy on the next step of his journey and I am sure you will return to me a man who is more focused and ready to tackle his journey head on.
thanks for reading
