My son arrived at RTC on May 17th. The FedEx box was delivered yesterday but still no form letter :( Does anyone have a recruit with the same departure date? If so, have you received a form letter yet?
Wow, this time next week we will be on the road heading for Great Lakes. I can not believe that boot camp is almost over. I am sure my SR does not feel the same way!
Looking forward to witnessing this next milestone in my son's life. His family and friends are so proud of him.

So since I wrote "How I've Changed" I have become a little less obsessive. I have stopped stalking the postal employees, I don't spend hours online searching for more information and I'm not scared to chat online or send a random stranger a friend request. I spoke to my son on Saturday, most of the call was him laughing at me because I was trying to impress him with the Navy lingo I have learned. I think I used some of it incorrectly, but he just humored me. Because of this site and the…Continue

Can anyone please help me. My daughter left for boot camp on April 19th. The only thing that I have yet to receive is her box with personal clothing items and her cell phone. Should I be expecting to receive anything else anytime soon. I have no idea when graduation is and I am eager to get my room booked. Her recruiter is no help as he never returns my phone call, so very disheartening. Can anyone fill me in on what to expect or when to expect it?
Does anyone else feel like a stalker? I mean before my son left I never even knew what time the mail arrived. Now I know my postal workers life story. I have never engaged in chats with strangers online nor did I know how to operate online chat. I think the first message I got I froze and clicked offline accidentally. Now I spend hours reading every post just to hear how everyone is doing. I'm not being nosey, but it's because no one understands what we are going through but each other.…Continue
I had got the sad call on yesterday, and I felt so bad for her, but I encouraged her in those 2 minutes and let her know how proud I am of her and that she is doing great. Then today I got a call that said Mom I passed today I will be graduating on time. I was smiling from ear to ear and so excited for her and to know she didn't give up. Whew what a relief, thanks ladies for your prayers and encouragement it really does take a village.
My daughter called today to let me know she didnt pass the prone float of the swim test. She sounded so sad, but they let me talk to her for 2 minutes, I encouraged her and told her she will pass next time and that I was so proud of her. So she will not be graduating May 5th. Can anyone tell me what happens to her now. I feel bad because she was so sad, Im sure she will get it next time
This is my first time on this wonderful site. My son arrived at boot camp early AM on the 21st. We just received the box yesterday with all of his belongings except his wallet, I am hoping they allowed them to keep this.
Would love to hear from other Mother's who have a son or daughter that arrived the same time.
My son called this past Saturday, and I was so excited to hear from him! He said it was a bit of a adjustment, but that he's doing okay. He is in Division 170, and his graduation is June 2nd. We are already planning for our trip up there!
My son left 4/06. I got a text saying he landed at O'Hare around 9:00pm. The call came in at 1:45am "mom I am good, expect the box soon, a letter will arrive with my address and other info, love you mom, bye". The box came exactly a week after by FedEx. The letter a couple of days after that. I've written twice. Today is his 19th day at Boot Camp. His graduation is on June 2nd. Can't wait to see him! I am so, so proud that he has made this commitment. My best to all the young men and women…Continue
Ok, I get a call over the weekend that my son has hurt his knee real bad, may require surgery. Can they do rehab there during basic so he can finish basic. He does not want to opt out. He was told that he could opt out, have surgery and then re-enlist. He really wants to stay and finish. I don't know where to turn or what to do
