    I had my home visit last night so I'm good there. Sounds like November class is still a go. I cannot say enough nice things about my background investigator. She really accommodated my family during this process. She was very understanding. From here I guess I will hear from personnel to schedule my medical. I couldn't get too many details from BI as she wanted to do her thing and go so I could get back to the hospital. Was at my house for 5 minutes at the most.

    Cold beer sounds great........ if I could put my daughter down for 5 minutes. I'm a mush.

    I'm assuming if you haven't been contacted yet by a BI, then you're pretty much SOL on the November class. It's definitely happening from what I am hearing

    Well we all know how reliable the rumor mill is around here, so maybe that won't be the case. Harry, aren't you hitting 38 in December? I hope for your sake the rumor is false.

    Yea, I'm a W. I haven't harassed Ms. Hammond but I do have to reach out to her now, b/c I'm getting married and going to be out of the country, so I don't want them to contact me when i'm gone and then throw my folder out when they don't hear back from me.

    I think some investigators are further along in their folders than others. The good news is they're gonna have to haul *** if they are that far behind. I'm sure they have deadlines as well.

    You guys will get the call. Now does going through all this guarantee us anything? Absolutely not. If anything has come out of this I've definitely learned how to channel my emotions. Lol

    I hope so, haven't heard anything. I remember one of the nurses telling me that they had CFD medicals scheduled through October.
