So looks like I am going to have to go through this all over again, my baby is coming back home tonight. I made him wear long sleeves and jeans to help his dad in the yard to prevent bug bites, cuts and/or sunburn before going to MEPS. You guessed it he got a slight heat rash and they would not pass him in medical without a consult. They told him to take a seat until they could get him scheduled with a doctor. They forgot him and he sat there waiting from 8 til 3. By the time they realized…Continue

I am sitting here listening to the thunder roll and trying so come to grips with this chapter of life coming to an end. Our phone has rang off the hook the last couple of days and his Aunt that lives near us came over to get her hug. My side of the family is at least 5 1/2 hour drive away thus the phone calls. His big brother called from Wisconsin and they were on the phone for about an hour (of course he had to talk to his nieces too) He wanted chinese food for his last day at home, so…Continue
Does anyome know when Div 309 does there BS? I do know Div 311 and 312 are doing theres now.
Just 5 more wake ups, just 5 more sleepy " I'm up Momma." and just 5 more wake ups and my next will be empty. He is so bored and antsy pantsy right now, he is cramming in all the face time and game time he can with his buddies. My Dad is 85 and is terminally ill with cancer and I know in my heart that my son has seen his Paw for the last time and I get all choked up when I talk to daddy on the phone right now as he is very close to both my boys. My sister calls me about three times a day…Continue

Are there a lot of uber’s in the area? Or are they hard to get in Waukegan?
Has anyone ever used Sandboxx to book their flight to graduation? If so, is the Travel Plus Program legit?
I go from having a sob fest on his bed while he is gone to the gym to and immense sense of pride in all he is striving to do with his future. I look at him and I still see that little boy who slept in my lap at church on Sunday mornings. I see that sweet little boy who loved to watch Toy Story and drag his Woody Doll everywhere we went. I see that sweet little boy running around with his Bibleman Cape on. I see the little boy who loved playing soccer. I see my little boy who always wanted…Continue
Does Drivers license info need to match actual current address and the adress on the form our recruit sent us?
Hi. I'm new to this group and am sure to have plenty of questions. My son began OCS on July 1. Can anyone share when we may find out his class number for mailing letters?
I haven't posed in a while and it will probably be a while before I post again. My son graduated from Bootcamp and is safe in A School. He has Classed up and gets to wear Civilian Clothes, have his cell phone and take weekend liberty. You would think that I would hear more from him. Nope, I get updates only after I repeat the question and it is as short as possible. I will have a party if I can get a complete sentence out of him. He and his sister text back and forth while I hear…Continue
What is up with all the bouts of pneumonia?? I got a call this evening from my fiancé that he’s in the hospital because of it. I told him that I hope he gets well soon, I know he’s disappointed that he’s going to probably be set back a week because of this. On the upside, he caught me before I purchased my plane tickets and made the rest of my travel plans.
What is the best way to deliver my form letter to ensure my SR receives it? Does everyone mail it and it's been okay?
I just received my form letter today and ready to send out but I wanted to see how the majority is done to make sure he receives it.
I had an idea for my sons allowed “address book” before he shipped off to boot camp but I wasn’t sure if it would pass or not. It did and he was able to keep it so I thought I’d share the idea with everyone. We took a small colored memo book, 80 sheets, tape bound (not wire bound) and only 3 1/2" x 4 1/2". In the front I wrote out all of the addresses and phone numbers he wanted to take with him. Then I printed labels for the same addresses and I bought stamps…the labels and stamps have a…Continue

Working on the list of things to do before our son ships. Learning lots of things as he has never been so open in his discussions before. We have always had the open door you can tell us anything policy, but seems I am meeting a grown man standing where my baby used to stand. I love his willingness to learn and the fierceness of his passion on things he cares most about. I truly cannot wait to see what his future holds and I pray the opportunity he now possesses will take him places I can…Continue
