Looking to chat with other moms that have a son/daughter heading to boot camp on that date.
Anyone have a son or daughter leaving for boot camp the month of October 2017? My son leaves on October 30th.... Very happy to have more time but anxious at the same time... this is all new to me... I know he graduates from boot camp we have one day with him and he stays in GL for Fire Control school.
BULLS UNIT Ship 06 DIV 147 proud Mom here.
Just joined and have been reading and enjoying all the posts and information. Our recruiters weren't the greatest at preparing us, but I have found this place to be a great support group. I got "the box" which actually ended up being 2 boxes and the form letter so I know that my son's PIR is 4/28/17. I am one of those hyper-planners when it comes to reservations so I have already booked a hotel. Don't worry, I can change the dates if necessary. I am hoping that…Continue

Hi, My son is attending OCS on April, 2 2017. I have been trying to find a packing list or suggested items to pack but have been unable to find anything. Does anyone have a list? or any suggestions?
My son came home last night in his preparation for leaving April 4. I have been watching and researching, so I believe with all the advice and articles located here, he will be ready. Now I just have to find out which hotel in Des Moines to make reservations at. Thirty-four days until Great Lakes.
My son leaves Nov. 29 for Great Lakes. What happens over Christmas at boot camp?
My son flew out to boot camp in Great Lakes 2 weeks ago tomorrow. I received his box last week, very excited, and his form letter yesterday. Never been so happy to see his crusty old work boots and to read his hen scratch on an envelope!
My poor son would be the gpa of his division at the ripest of allowed age! But I guess so good so far! I miss him so much!

My son leaves on April 4. I am now trying to make sure that he has everything he needs. One of the items listed is a "skinny" wallet. Is there dimensions anywhere that I should be following, or is any thin bifold o.k.? Thanks in advance for your help.
