ugh Sad that the Vermont Service Center is slow on getting our NOA 1 Hard copies out and I live in Vermont.. Too bad I just couldn't go pick it up. I did call them on Tuesday to ask why I could not add my Case Number to be followed as all I get is the "case not found" comments and was told until the letter is generated then I would not see it. Ugh come on Vermont!! :)
