news from justin...

I’ve been hearing from Justin non-stop for the past 16 hours; using all forms of communication.

Yesterday in the mail I received my very first EVER letter from Justin. Short and sweet.

Then at 3:26AM, I received a text message from him reiterating that it’s stressful there.

“I love you mom. I miss talking to you. I earned my cell today for being a good soldier, Haha! It’s very stressful here, and I don’t sleep much. But I love you.”

At 5:01AM, I received an email from him of a picture he took of himself.

Then just before 10AM, he called me. He wanted to tell me that he’s been transferred to a different unit, his graduation has been put off two weeks and that he needed to get off the phone and into formation.

Don't know any of that yet. He told me in the letter not to reply to this letter yet. He's moving to a new unit soon, so he'll have a different address.

He text me at 3 am today too. Checking in. He’s starting to struggle. I wish we’d get an address because the mail really does help. They often move them around in the beginning to find the right unit for his speed of PT etc. I know my other Justin has moved around 2-3 times and then moved back UP to where he started once his skills improved physically.
