    LImomof2: Awwwww. MY DS is in 4th co (just back from sea). However, *I* remember his Indoc, and waiting ALL day for the call that never came.

    These kids are being shaped... and part of the lesson is underscoring that phone communications are a privilege (earned), not a RIGHT. We were wayy bummed, but he's survived, and 4th company is just a great team.

    PS. When they get their computer, email will make things a lot easier.... although, YOU need to continue to MAIL things... These kids LOVE it when they go to their post box and SOMETHING/ANYTHING is in it.

    PPS. Although TONS of people use it, IM/SKYPE/etc can be REAL 'time wasters'. 15 minutes of clock time can zip past, in what could have been a 2 minute phone conversation.

    The BIGGEST lesson for them to learn is TIME MANAGEMENT. It is REALLY hard, if not impossible, to 'catch back up'.

    Thank you Zonker. I did finally get a call last night at 10:30PM and it turns out my DS has been moved to 5th company. Apparently his dorm does not have a/c so I guess you do have to roll with the punches. Are there plans for the final dorms to get a/c?
