Heard from DS today. He must have called immediately after getting the news/orders. His TBS report date is Sept 8, 2015 (of course). It's the date we all were rooting for and frankly the one I expected. Some of those field exercises could be damned cold in Dec - Feb. We're all excited and for me it means he can finally go on my annual Canadian fishing trip in June. I've been trying to get him there for years! Woohoo! Now we need to get him to line up a summer job, which I don't think he'll have any difficulty doing. He may even be able to get a couple. There's a bartender job at a craft brewery that I know he's interested in. Anyone else hear yet?
