and a game, "Where in the World", where their friends could make guesses where they would serve.

Graigry was the first to find his call in the mail and so we opened his call first at his apartment.
Graigry set up a google hangout so our out of town relatives could get the news in real time.
Then we moved across the street to Jessica's apartment to open her call with her friends.
