Usually you count 9 Fridays - so possibly 7/6/18. But nothing is for certain until you get the official letter. Be sure to join the boot camp group and you'll find most of your questions can be answered there.
Welcome. By counting 9 Fridays, PIR will most likely be 07/06/2018 for those who shipped on 05/08/2018. It could be 06/29/2018 for some if they are in a Push Division and were placed in one of the last divisions from the week before. It is possible for some who arrive on the same date to have PIR a week apart. Wait on The Form Letter to know the PIR date for sure. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what is happening and what to expect.

Ceemom99, you are not the only one who did not receive a call on Mother's Day. With 6000-7000 recruits at the RTC, it would be impossible to give all of them even 5 minutes at the phone banks on one day. Those who had not completed P-days, such as your recruit, would definitely not get a call. Your recruit MAY have been assigned to a division in the last day or two. He will have holiday routine for the first time this coming Sunday and will be able to write. You should be receiving The Form Letter next week--ten to fourteen business days after arrival is now the norm. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what to expect.
You may receive an "I'm still alive!" call in week 3 or 4 (calendar week, not DOT), but that call can come before or after that depending on when the RDC is able to schedule the phone banks. Don't expect a call, but do have your phone available from 8ish am to 8ish pm Central Time and be pleasantly surprised when you receive a call. The "I'm still alive!" call or other calls the RDC schedules usually come in the mornings on weekdays except on the day of a PIR because the "I'm a Sailor!" calls, which are typically made 1 to 4 days before PIR now, are in the afternoon and evenings, but calls can come anytime during those hours on Saturday. Calls on the day of a PIR or on Sunday come between 1 and 8 pm. Calls for security reasons or for information are generally made during regular business hours. Remember "No news is good news!"
