he is back from CAX at 29 Palms and back at Beaufort MCAS. Said that he had made Lcpl. on the first! OOHRAH! But that he was scheduled to go to Japan in July...Ione, sound familiar?! Sooo...he was back to sounding like his old self. Thanks everyone, who responded several weeks ago and reassured me that there are bad days in the Corps. What a roller coaster ride! He made his phone call pretty short-said he was going out to buy new chevrons!
While he was gone to CAX, his roommate that was driving him crazy(drinking, smoking-not just ciagarettes! and trashing the place!)got moved...to the brig, I believe, for failing a urine drug test. Supposedly to be courtmartialed out, cuz he had already been sent to CCU not once, but twice. So I think maybe Will is back to believing that the Corps works. Unfortunate for the other Marine, but I guess if you don't learn, eventually you pay.
