First of all, A big thanks to Carolyn and her parents for a very successful open house. Secondly thanks for all of you that took time to come. It really means a lot to have friends and coworkers show their support. As soon as I get home and download the pictures off the camera I'll post a few I took :)

Investigating Communication Methods

Without real information or facts, I turn to the internet to provide a bit more information about what's in store. I think I've done quite well learning about what it might be like, how to communicate, what to send, and how to send things.

I'll do my best to gather this together for everyone to have the resources I've found that seem useful.

  • MotoMail is a email / printed lettter hybrid system that the Marines provide to a fast physical letter to the Marine.
  • Once you have an account with the Marine's information you can write a letter from home into their system, it will go through their processes, then be printed up and handed to the Marine (often with 24-48 hours)
