Wes finally got his leave date yesterday. He goes on November 3 and his job will be F15 Avionics. I am so glad he will not be in San Antonio in the summer. He wouldn't mind, but I just can't stand that kind of heat!! A couple of weeks ago, the local recruiters got together and had a big send-off party for all the new recruits who would be leaving over the next few months. All the branches were there and the recruits were introduced. A bunch of local business donated stuff for gift packs for the kids and prizes. Wes won the privilege of throwing out the first pitch at the local frontier league baseball game by beaning his recruiter with a ball during one of the games. It poured rain that day, so some of the games didn't get off the ground. Too bad. They had rented a dunk tank and the moms and grandmas were going to try to dunk the recruiters. I would have really enjoyed that. :)
So, now I have a countdown.
