Thanks, Meredith, for this information:
Hey Dr. Copeland,
My mom just sent this to me so I thought I would pass it along to you.

I have been on the phone with a travel agent for Heather’s senior trip. She told me that anyone needing to get a passport for a summer trip needs to apply ASAP. Since Katrina, the office in New Orleans has been closed and there is a back log. So, you might want to share this with Dr. Copeland. Also, if someone already has a passport and it will expire within 6 months of the travel date, the airlines can refuse to let these passengers board the flights. So…..the ones with passports will need to have them updated if they are set to expire by December 2007.
Here is the link for passports: http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html. They cost about $100.00.
See you later dear!
