What is the $250 for??? Ok, son will have money in his Armed Services bank account all ready (transferring money from personal checking/saving when he closes it). I shipped his toiletries to his B&B/sponsor's house all ready. I read some time during BCT he will be buying an iron. I want him to have emergency cash since he is flying out alone but I'm thinking $150.00 is plenty. Are there other things he will be buying? I will send him with however much he needs, but I'm not really seeing a good accounting of what this is for, (unless Braun makes irons too! lol) and finances are tight. Any thoughts are appreciated!
