UPDATE: 04/01/09) Heard from Doug tonight, his promotion finally "offically" came through to PO3. He acts like its no big deal.............mom told him we better see pics soon with the new insignia..................LOL
(02/25/09) Well, Dougs back at Corry now as permanent party/staff. He drove down by himself, left 0100 and arrived around 2100, he sounded like he was dead on his feet and was heading to bed. We will have to wait until probably Monday and he gets assigned to his new barracks and reports in to find out what he he will be doing (if he can say). He is supposed to make E4 once he settles into the new unit, he already has 8 mths TIG as E3 since he had has NJROTC time, cant wait to see those stripes replaced by the eagle and rocker.
(02/11/09) Graduates "C" school in the morning, I am down here at Corry to bring him and his junk home.............it's amazing how much junk a 19 yr old can collect in 6 months ......LOL! Hope to be home Thursday morning/afternoon. He has 10 days or so home that back down here for 1st duty station.
Been so long since I have spent time in/around a military based town, forgot just how bad it can be. NAS Pensacola up the road is beautiful...............Corry is like an ungly step child. Obama needs to sent some of that stimulis money down here to fix the place up.
