Please discuss liberty with your recruit during their phone calls home. Be sure to ask when they are departing boot camp for their next school. Continue to write your recruit and stay informed.

vabchsue is on a distinguished road

And one more thought/suggestion.....Michael was not told until just a couple of hours before PIR that he was now a grad 'n go, and he wasn't able to let us know this until after the PIR ceremony. We were only able to spend a couple of hours with him out at O'Hare once he was dropped off there. We had made all kinds of plans of what we were going to do while back home in IL, but weren't able to do them. We have long since gotten over this, but just know that it can happen and be prepared for changes in orders at the last minute. It may not happen often, but it does happen.

There's a lot to see and do while you're in the Chicago area so take advantage of all it has to offer.
