Went through that with my wife. She joined up. Got down to boot and found out she was knocked up. She wants to go back but she don't want to leave our son.

Good luck to him from a 26 year retiree. At least he joined the right branch Tell him to follow orders and he will be fine. Tell him thanks for his service and thank you mom and dad.

Did he go in with a guaranteed job?

Yes, he scored pretty high on his asvab test (89) and after technical school will be assigned a plane as a crew chief.

Thanks for all the well wishes it's getting easier every day but those first few days were brutal.
