This Just In.....

UPDATE: Matt just called. His Security Forces school does not start until March. They are that far behind. If he can get his PFT score up to 225 then he will get to come home and work Recruiters Assistance for 30 days. He will qualify on Wednesday. His current score is 203. He said that he was going to work out alot until Wednesday. There isn't really much for them to do right now. They are just in a holding platoon right now.

If he doesn't get his score up, then he will have to stay there and work in groups until March.

He says that they call this place he's at they have nicknamed "Camp Cornfield" because there is NOTHING... absolutely NOTHING within miles from them. The only thing on base is a PX and an ATM machine. He's about 20 minutes from Virginia Beach. At least on base in Jacksonville they had a Wendy's.

So... this is a good thing... means he WON'T be deployed in April as I had feared. He also told me that they way it looks now that he won't be deployed for 2 years... but of course that can change at the drop of a hat...

Will keep you updated if he gets to come home or not.

He has some good motivation to pick up that score, I for on am betting he makes it.

The following is copied from your last post comments just in case you missed it:

Happy Birthday to You" is a song which is sung to celebrate the anniversary of a person's birth. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, "Happy Birthday to You" is the most popular song in the English language, followed by "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and "Auld Lang Syne."[citation needed] The song has been translated into many languages, though it is often sung with the English lyrics even in countries where English is not a primary language.

Just in case you wanted to know, Happy Birthday.
