Awesome! Amazing! Astounding!
John finally received his orders this evening!!! Next base... Wright-Patterson, but only after fifteen days at home! His Sponsor directed John to report on 07.05.2008.
One final block test on Wednesday, which I am certain John will ace.
It will be so good to have him home! It's the little things which have been missed most, like being able to share a spontaneous conversation about nothing or something, enjoy a meal together, play Rummy until late at night (or early in the morning)! Simply, his presence at home has been sorely missed.
I am so very proud of him for coming thus far, toughing out 6-1/2 weeks of BMT, 8 weeks of Tech School, not to mention various growing pains of stepping from boyhood to becoming a man. He continues to hold on to what his core is made of, he is constant and true to himself
Now off to a brand new chapter, Air Force life with the big guns. He has been trained well and met all requirements. It is up to him to move forward in a positive fashion, to make his mark, to make this life choice the best possible world.
John, I do love you so!
