New poster here.....I signed in on the Introduction board this morning with a few details of our situation. Let me say right now that you all are an amazing group of people, and this is a tremendous resource. Son just received email from USCGA saying that on April 30, he can email and find out which "group of 30" alternates he's in. Apparently they group the alternates into sets of 30, and then put those groups into a particular order. That's at least SOME information to have in this period of extreme waiting anxiety. Anyone else have any experience with this alternate grouping thing?
