It's looking good. Now comes the countless hours of tweaking, writing guidelines, doing banners, and on and on. I'm headed to the bowling alley. I haven't done that in years. Somebody thought it would be fun if the whole family went bowling today. I'll check back in later today. If you need any help call me tonight. I'll be back around 6 to 7 your time. Y'all have fun. p.s. on the banner size I have 955 by 190 on my site. ttyl

Thanks for your warm welcome. It will be exciting to see people come to this site and find solace. Perhaps they'll even get a few questions answered too! You're my hero!

What does your video is being converted mean? How long does it take? It is nice that you started this page, we actually have an Airman and a Submariner. Thank you for all your hard work. Kathie Dana's wife

Terry it could take a couple of days for the change to take affect that we did. I forgot to tell you that. Any luck on the verification? Keep me posted and I will talk to you soon.

Thanks, Sgt. Terry. I am so glad you started this site. My son is so clear about his future and what he wants to do and I am just, well, unsure of what my role is in his future. He wants to make the Air Force his career and if that is what he wants, then I want to support him any way I can. I hope this site really takes off, as I am sure there are plenty of parents out there like me needing to connect with the parents who have been through this before me. Again, thanks. Lesa

Terry I had to post this here because for some reason it kept rejected to sen the email. Terry I just had that happen today. Someone posted a new discussion and it put it in the about this site also. I went to respond and noticed it and changed it. So it must be a cliche. These things tend to happen and work themselves out usually. I've had minor problems along the way.They are usually quick to fix them. Unleash me I'm ready to give it a try.

So, tell me something. I was shopping today and found an Air Force Christmas Ornament. I didn't buy it because just seeing it and thinking about my son leaving almost made me cry right there in the mall. How on Earth am I supposed to handle him leaving for Basic? Am I going to totally fall apart or will I somehow hold it together?

Thank you very much for your response. It helped a lot. I am going to let my daughter read it and see what she will decide.

Sgt Terry,
My husband was in t he Air Force during the Vietnam war. He was in Electronics, and was stationed in Japan. He was in for 7.5 years, and was going to stay, but he believes he was discriminated against when he was trying to become a Sgt. He is African-American, and it was during the middle of the 60's (th civil rights era). They told him there was a freeze, and the day after he put in for his discharge, they told him he was approved, but since he had requested a discharge, it was too late. He was bitter about, but he seemed to have liked everything else about the Air Force, because he is encouraging our daughter, and he doesn't mind if she goes in now.
I went to see the Recruiter with her. He gave her a list of jobs, and told her she will be told to choose five. I saw that two or three are related to computers, and the one related to weapons are obvious. Have you seen that list? If you have, can you give suggestions on how she can choose a job that will be "safe", meaning, she won't be riding around in those mine infested areas in Iraq or Afganistan? (You can see I am being paranoid...). She loves to be at her computer, and she can type 70 words per minute. She also likes to work with people, and loves Art ( drawing, painting). I wonder if they have jobs that require drawing. Many of the jobs on the list don't give a clue about what they mean.
My husband doesn't recognize some of them either, because he left more than 45 years ago.

Thank you for your response. My daughter just found explanations for several of the jobs online, at the Air Force site. We also got a phone call from our sailor son, and he suggested that his sister join now for 4 years, and then if she wants to stay, she could finish school and apply to be an Officer. I just decided to be supportive of whatever decision she makes.
Have a wonderful Christmas, and may God bless you and your family throughout the New Year.
Heloisa and family

Thx Terry, and to your boys as well. I hope they stay safe. My brother and broyther-in-law were communications linguists (or something like that) in the Army, in Taiwan. During their service from 72-76. They booth listened on radios for certain dialects of a language. And report on the conversations about military talk. Steph is ready to go , I think. And, is confident about here decision.

Well, my daughter decided that, since she has to lose 5 lbs to enlist, she is going to have an exercise and body-strengthening time. Since she is our dependent, and is under our health insurance, I told her that until she is ready to enlist, she should be a full time student somewhere. She settled for studying on line through University of Phoenix. After we started the application, I learned that some colleges have ROTC, which is a great way to start, because the tuition is paid while they prepare to go in as Officers. My daughter is not ambitious, and she is saying she doesn't want to go in as an Officer, because she wouldn't go in until she graduates in two years. She wants to join in July. I feel a little frustrated.

Wow, thanks for the link! I have some better ideas on what to get him now. The day he signed up, he became very difficult to buy gifts for!

Thank you for the welcome! Even though I get very emotional every time I let myself think about it, I have never been more proud of Wesley. I'm glad my sister invited me here.
