Got our first phone call yesterday around noon from Julian. It was great to hear from him and to hear his voice. He told that he only had 90 seconds to call and wanted us to know he was ok and he sends his love. My question to him was "is it all I told you it would be?" and his response was yes. He is sending his information for graduation to his mother which should be here this week. They were on their last p day and he and his shipmates would be moving into their ship either this afternoon or by tomorrow (Tuesday). I told him to hang in there and that his time would end sooner than he thinks. Sent him my love along with everyone else in the family and we hung the phone up. Funny thing is that after going over in my mind what we had talked about I came to the conclusion that he is already sounding different, still seemed scared of the unknown but was ready to take whatever he was handed head on. Still say my prayers for my sons (yep I now have two in the military) and for the countless numbers of GI's in harms way everyday. May the good Lord grant moms and dads all over a peaceful, tranquil day.
