I understand that Rats don't have cell phones in their possession. They are at the mercy of their Dyke or someone in the community to loan a phone for a short call home. For some reason our DS is not receiving, or maybe not accepting the offer of a phone to call his parents. This hard corp attitude may fade as the term progresses and he'll call his parents. We're not concerned, as much as curious. Communication has been upbeat and confident. His text-like emails of 140 characters or less are starting to tick me off. Is there a pay phone on post Rats are allowed to use?
