A few updates
Still no real updates on the situation with my soldier (see below). The army is insisting to him that he can travel with just his military ID and leave paperwork. That conflicts with all the other information I've gathered, which is that he needs a passport. I want him to have those folks on his base call the airline. If the airline says he can travel with just the military documentation, then I'll be satisfied. But I think his army travel people are wrong. I suggested he wear his uniform to the airport. No worse press than to deny boarding to a uniformed USA soldier heading home to see his mom. But my son tells me the military won't allow them to travel in uniform for security reasons. The saga continues...
Just got back from a business trip to Pennsylvania. Among other things, I was there for my annual review. It went well. I remain employed!! In this economic environment, that's a very good thing!
