My son called and stated that he will be doing the YP up the coast on his first block and coming home his second block. He then stated that "because of a funding shortage they may not be getting cruise assignments for the third block." He may be home for two months before returning for his youngster year. Has anyone else heard about this? NurseyPoo, I can still remember the count down for I-Day. This has been a fast year, for my wife and I not for our son.
