My son left today 6/27 for Parris Island
Posted By: carol Mcdonald 06-27-11
I would love to communicate with other mom's whose sons have just gone in....to give eachother encouragement if they are further along than my son. This was so tough today....saying goodbye and watching him run to get on the bus. My x didn't reach the phone in time so all we had was a log of a call from a restricted number coming in. Darn. I am sure my son is tired, nervous and wish he could have spoken to his dad. Damn, this is hard.
