You might try that so you don't have to wait. :) I only called since I was not going to be sent his address. He's such a good son, he sent it to his mom and gave her the I made it to basic call.
My son left on the 28th. This is my second son in 7 months going to bootcamp! The 1st one got out of A-School in August and is already deployed in the Arabian Sea. This one will be a MT, Missle Tech, on Submarines. Got the box Monday, Nov. 1st. Got the letter yesterday, Nov. 3rd. Also got an unexpected call from him last night saying that he needed information to complete some paperwork. He was obviously in someone's office and couldn't talk. Just said what he needed. Supposed to call back tonight to get the information he requested.
