Barrett is doing well! Thanks for asking. He was in Pensacola for about 6 weeks before being classed up, and being given brown bagger status; which means he can live off base with his wife. He tells us the food there is the best in the Navy, and he and his bride really enjoy all Florida has to offer. I can't wait to hear your experience at PIR. We are as excited for you as we were to be there.
Hey gang hows everyone doing still no letter from nat again but we hope hell call tonight like he told us he would.i hope yr son is hanging in there im sure he is there a tough bunch when they want to be its just getting to initial spark that gets them going and im sure the get that every morning .My wife broke down last night before i left for work she hasnt done that for a while but i explained it to her again that nat needed this and if he stayed here howed he would have turned out and it helpedbut we still love our son very much and sometimes it hurts when there hurting.....well lets hope both are well and getting there team to work togtherfrom wht i hear this is the week for that to all come togther.talk to ya again soon take care Tim

You got the first letter! Always a thrill, and more will come. It won't be long, and you'll start getting phone calls. As for flights, I've looked at priceline, expedia, and airline websites. They all price out the same. I wonder if a travel agent couldn't get you a good deal. Good luck
