Matt was sick with a cold & ear infection so he could not go in the Navy until he is better. They changed his ship date to January 25th. He was so disapointed, he wants to hurry up and get on with it.
He will have plenty of waiting to do when he gets in. There is always something to wait for in such a big organization like the Navy.
Today is his 19th birthday and he expected to be starting boot camp today!
