Most likely he will ship out to afganistan soon which is what he requested when he signed up. His MOS was to be combat support artillery but lost that when he got delayed graduating boot. The other is Lance

    Thanks RR. My best wishes to them. And to you and the Mrs., know in your mind and heart that they have gotten the best training possible. What will be will be. Our children take us places we can almost never forsee and can't predict w/ any accuracy. May they come back to us whole.

    Blessings.
