    DS just received a nomination from Duncan Hunter here in San Diego!!! Poor thing is sitting for another ACT and doesn't know it yet.

    LOL, ok so we looked like dorks holding the envelope up to the light, I'm sure our neighbors wondered what the heck we were doing as shortly after that we were screaming and crying like babies. We've set up the video camera on the bookcase, strategically hidden to catch his reaction when he opens the envelope.

    Good luck to everyone who is enduring this hellish wait :thumb:

    Just received mine today as well. I opened it during the third quarter of the Army-Navy game (very fitting).

    Now the wait begins.

    Last year my Son's nomination letter and appointment package were delivered on the same day in late January.

    He knew (?) he had the nomination from a computer notation, which may have been on the DODMERB site, but it would have been nice to have had the letter in hand.

    Best of luck to you all!
