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.
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.
