I have been enjoying reading the posts so far. My son will be in BootCamp in July too! Looking forward to getting to know some of you better.
My Son leave on July 11 also. I think I am done crying for now.... we are less than one week out, and I seem to be doing ok. Hopefully you are doing better now as well.
I have been doing OK...I can't believe it's next week already! I haven't cried yet. My eyes fill up a little when I think about it. I think I am saving any tears for after he leaves. I am so proud so I am focusing on that feeling instead. It's hard.
My son leaves on July 13, and it's getting harder and harder. We have figured out something that helps, however ... whenever I start getting emotional or he see's me getting misty he just says "Mom, I'm still here" and it snaps me right out of it. I shouldn't be missing him while he is still here!!!!
I have been missing mine too and he is still here. I hug alot!

God Morning, Not sure what time it is where you are but I am in Phoenix, AZ and it is 9:24 am very hot and Muggy. My son swore in July 5th 2017 and then was off to his new Journey in Great Lakes. I have to say I am very proud of my son. I just received his box of clothes yesterday and then on top of that his Graduation pictures. I am still just waiting for his next call home. But I was able to write him a letter.
My son left on July 11th, I am very proud of him but it is hard not hearing from him.
My Son also left on the 11th. I missed his box on Friday. They should try to re-deliver today. I have been writing him everyday, even though I don't have an address to send them to yet. It seems to help me, I feel like I am talking to him.
