Where's he going to boot camp? Great Lakes, San Diego

I went to Orlando back in the day, before they closed it down. I think he'll have a blast!
He's at Great Lakes.

Thank you all for your kind words. It made me smile.

Thought I would let you all know.

We're all so proud of him.


Let me tell you from first hand experience. I am a retired Naval Seabee reservist. I went to Orlando in Jan. of 1987 for basic training and retired in Jan. of 2007.

I have been to RTC Great Lakes from 1999-2004 many times in September to help with what is called the "Seasonal Surge" Thats when kids graduate high school and go to basic training.

Going during this time of year is perfect because of the weather. Trust me on this, with RTC right next to Lake Michigan, he wouldn't wanna be there during winter.

If you and your family are concerned about him, trust me.....he will be just fine. Again, I speak from experience. I know what he is going through. If he does what he is told and when he is told to do it, he will make it with no sweat.

If I can be of any help to you and your family, by all means let me know.

SW1 Dennis
