Good morning all. Things have been a little busy here in Kansas the last week or so.
First of all my daughter Cindy said "Well got the final word. Iraq in late Sept for sure. Dont have anymore info on it right now." Cindy is a CIWS-FC 3 in the Navy and is currently with the USS Abraham Lincoln. Cindy volunteered to go to Iraq as an IA "Individual Augmentee" . Cindy is on leave right now with her boyfriend in Washington state.
My son Mike joined the ARMY last week and will go to basic training and then train to be an MP Sept 15th at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. Mike has been working out almost every day trying to get ready for the long months of training ahead. In the meantime Mike got a temp job working at Russell Stover Candies in Iola, KS for the next two weeks.
My son John took a few days off from his Ship the USS Doyle now that they are back in port in Florida for a few weeks and went to Orlando with some other friends from the ship. John is doing well and has been studing for his 2nd class Petty officer test and his Enlisted Surface Warfare pin.
That's about all for now. Hope everyone has a great week.
