I am not talking about travellers. I am talking about the switched feed wire to the fixture. Travellers do not feed the fixture. They feed the other switch.

Thanks Guys, set up the second switch today and it works perfect. I made sure I used the black wire to the black screw and the red and white wires for the transports. Thanks for the help!
