    DS got the call last night!
    :jump1:

    Oh yeah! So happy for him. A joy and blessing to have such a reward for all the hard work he did in school.

    Can't wait to give him his first salute. I might just tear up.

    Congrats!

    Just have to wait 4.5 years to give that salute, but that time will fly by!

    Pics in the post

    Yeah it's a little funky, Here's how:
    Navigate to the pic you like to post on the web like FB and right click on it, then choose "copy URL". Go back to post here and select insert image, then paste your url in the box. "Preview your post" to check if it worked.

    Feeling Excited!

    I got the official call while I was waiting in line for Catching Fire. I think the other people in line thought I was crazy because I started jumping around and yelling when LCDR Frazier said "Congratulations!" I can't wait to arrive at swab summer, and I can't wait to salute you back, Dad! :smile:

    No...we haven't started EA2 reviews yet. EA1 notifications aren't even due until 12/24, so EA2 applicants won't be hearing from us until late December (at the earliest) or January.
