We received another set of letters from Christopher yesterday. These were dated Sept 2 and he still had not received any mail, hopefully by now he has gotten some.
He was actually at the Dentist when he wrote my letter and said that they were doing the gas chamber the next day. His spirits seemed to be better and he has been made a Squad Leader. I will not pretend to know what this means but it sounds like something that might be good.
Because he still has not received any mail he has no idea that we are going to be there for Family Day next month and keeps reassuring us that he understands if we can not make it. It absolutely breaks my heart that he thinks that he will be alone that day.
Because of the lack of phone calls and not being able to get answers to questions that I ask in letters, I am lost on his time line and have no idea where he is in his training or what phase he is in. He keeps telling us that they will be graduating in Dec and originally that was the date on his orders and on the Ft. Knox website but now the web site says they are graduating in Jan. The only thing I can figure out is that maybe they will get time off for Thanksgiving and Christmas and the extra few weeks would make up for that time. Hell I dont know, this is frustrating!!!
Oh well I will continue to be ARMY MOM STRONG
