Interesting facts about me

5/12/09
I am the proud Mom of 2 boys! Joe, age 23, lives in a small apt. in Rochester. He is a Project Manager and is attending school at night. Mark, age 20, is my Marine. Growing up Mark was always the one with the No Fear attitude. If the boys were trying something new like jumping off the picnic table Mark always went first and he was 2 1/2 years younger!

I am a Staff Assistant at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf @ RIT. I have been married, humm let me think....28 years!!

    I'm not sure about his MOS but I will def find out. He said that they went to the mall and out to explore the town. What's your son's name and I will ask him if they know each other. He said about 18 of the guys went out together. So maybe they do!

    My son graduated PI on 3/27 but got held up a week at MCT in guard camp. His MOS class doesn't pickup at Aberdeen until June 5th. Right now he has a room all to himself but I bet that will change tomorrow when the next group shows up. What is your boyfriends MOS, my sons is 2131.
    Did your boyfriend go into Towson last friday? Mark did and said they have a festival of some sort every Friday. He saw lots of Marines there.

    Hi Paula: Thanks for your note...we take every day at a time, some are good and some are bad and some I just want to climb a wall or hide in a corner....but I get through it just like we all do!!! My son went to MCC last year so I know where you are or at least Scottsville...Let's hope they both get through this and maybe we can organize a regional support group in our area....Janis

Hope things go well and I really hope my son makes it to Charlie Co....Janis

    Hi Janis,
    I feel your pain! I've read some of your posts. In fact I've been reading as many posts as I could since I've found this site. Your son (and you) must be very strong to go through all he has and not get discouraged. I hope he gets into a platoon soon, for both your sakes. My thoughts are with you.
    I live in the town of Chili. Not far from Scottsville. My son joined the Marines with a friend in the buddy program.
    Stay Strong.....Paula
