Thank you! DS was at a Civil Air Patrol Lock-in yesterday..and we received the BFE yesterday, so we did not want to wait till this AM and tell him when he was half asleep, so we drove to ST Cloud last night..and they announced it in front of about 200 kids from CAP..and the look on his face..priceless! We really have not had time to talk to him about it..came home this am and will sleep a good portion of the day (was up all night)he has been seriously looking into ROTC also (but no scholarship yet there) so maybe that will secure his decision about WP..who knows?? I did tell him if he received the appt I would take him out for a visit. Has your son done a visit? also where was this dinner held? I guess we missed the boat on that one. His name is Joe Brown and we are from East Bethel. thanks for the info on banking. Will his portal change soon to reflect the appt? I'm sure he would want to accept via portal rather than the little card they sent him.
