Update on the Boys

Just wanted to let family and friends know that the boys are doing well.

Jacob should be in his new living qtrs. by now and we plan to call him tomorrow and hopefully obtain an address for him, so look for an e-mail soon with that.

George is doing very well. He has been made Squad Leader now and is happy about that. They are in White Phase, which means they have a few more priviledges and don't have the drill sergeants in their face all the time now. His group won the Rifle Marksmanship Competition. He qualified as a Sharpshooter. He said he was only 1 point away from expert, but his gun jammed or something and messed up one of his shots, but he is happy he qualified as Sharpshooter as he didn't think he would. He is looking forward to us coming next month for Family Day. It is over Easter weekend, so we will get to spend Easter with him before he has to report back that afternoon. He will then start his Armor tank training and graduation is scheduled for that on May 29th, so we will go again to see him then. He called on Tues. and said that he should be finding out this week where he will be stationed after he graduates, so we hope to hear from him this weekend about that. Well, please keep writing him as he is very homesick and cards and letters help a great deal - no care packages please. He does like getting clipping of comic strips that you might think he would enjoy or cross word puzzles, word puzzles, word searches from the newspaper if you don't do them.
