And he called! Thankfully I had decided to keep my phone's ringer on until I heard from him. It was a short call, as I knew it would be. He said that he was at Fort Benning and that it would ten days before I heard from him again. I asked him if he got his haircut. He said yes. I asked him about the address and he said that he would probably send that to me. And then, "I gotta go Mom." Honestly, I don't even know if I said I love you. I was so out of it.
I will say there is a sense of relief to know he is there and starting his training. This was the expected end of the first step - getting to OSUT. Now the real work begins. I know he will do well and I can't wait to hear from him in ten days!!
