THANK YOU KPENGINEER! YOUR WORDS OF WISDOM WORKED!.. This passed weekend we as a family moved on to Plan "B". Our DS signed the papework for VMI and the check went into the mail at 9:00am this morning (after I checked my DS's portal) Still "HOLD". I called my sister at 11:30am to tell her that our DS was going to VMI (her son is graduating this May) she was telling me what to expect and what hotels to book and when. I had tears in my eyes when my DS and his sister walked into my place of work. My daughter said she knows! He said what is wrong? I said I'm talking to Auntie about VMI told her you are moving forward with PLAN B. He said" NO PLAN "B" FOR ME ONLY PLAN "A".
