How many phone calls can we expect? I know the night they get there and the last one to say they are Sailors. Any ideas???
Not sure. I think 1 when they get there one 3 weeks later and one saying they are a sailor.
I've heard those are the only two 'certain' phone calls and any others need be earned and will likely be unexpected. I've decided to keep my cell phone pretty much connected to my body until after BC when there'll be more flexibilty. He knows to call first on my cell during certain hours or at the house phone if in the evening. I'd send your preference on which number to call in your first letter.
I was bad anyway with my cell when my son was in college. I am worse now, I take it to the bathroom with me have it beside me at work and work out with my phone. I am addicted to waiting on him to call me lol.
So far I have gotten 3 calls since she left 8/7 and I'm sick to my stomach that I missed all 3. There is a 2 hour difference but I swear I wont miss another call should it come. The last call she left a message that she should be calling in 3 weeks and that I would be receiving a letter. I'm hoping it has info of when we can come out to see her graduate...
It will! The letter she's referring to should be the initial form letter that provides you her mailing address and PIR date. Sad to hear you've missed her calls. Her convo with you would have only lasted about 15 seconds anyway....just long enough to let you know she's arrived safely......fortunately, you already know from just having received the calls. Breathe easy - at least you know she's safe at her destination and on to doing great things. Hang in there lomasre!
Maybe he decided to donate his clothing instead of paying to ship it home. Have you received his form letter?
Just found out from the recuiter that Chip is Ship 01 Div 947. Anyone else?
Hi Everyone -
For all of you that had SR's arrive at bootcamp during the week of 8/7 and has a PIR date of 9/28, if you haven't already, you might be interested in joining the following group:
Lively and full of great discussion too. Hope you are all doing well as we head in to week #2 of our SR's being gone. Stay strong! :)
