This Time, He Got to Chat!
About half an hour after we went to bed last night, the phone rings. By now, I know to answer anything with a 619 area code. Yes, it’s him, and he sounded marvelous! No monotone this time; just our Sean.
Turns out his platoon won the shooting competition (the Rifle Range Trophy), and as a reward, they all got to phone home! The squad bay was noisy in the background, but we could hear him just fine. And more good news….he qualified as an “expert” marksman!
Several other Marine parents posted similar phone calls to the chat board. Naturally, everyone was pleased to hear from their sons.
We’re still waiting for the next letter home. Phone calls like that one make the wait a little easier. 27 days to go.
