Can anyone help me? I am super new to all of this and have so much anxiety! My son goes to MEPS in Troy Michigan on January 15th for his final swear in and goes to the airport to leave for boot camp January 16th in Chicago. Can someone tell me what time I should be at MEPS to accompany him for the swear in? His recruiter has been of no help to me. In fact, he has not returned my calls. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Wow. 32 people read this and not one word of advice or help.
I’m sorry. I am very new to all of this. I will withdraw everything.
Thank you! That is the same experience I have noticed thus far. My son’s recruiter has given us different answers multiple times. It took four calls to the station before he returned my call. I found that very odd and frustrating.
Thank you. I will call MEPS!
I appreciate your response and help! Thank you. It’s a relief to hear I am not the only one with these questions and experiences. They also told me 10:30 but they had given me incorrect dates and times prior to this so I am questioning his information. I want to be certain I am given the correct time.
Again, I appreciate your kindness and advice. THAT was the help I was looking for. :)
My son was told for us to be there at 9am so we were nearby having breakfast when he called and told us to actually come at 830. We had to wait in a line outside to go through security so it was 9 am before we got in, and then we still had to wait around before swearing in began! I believe they do different branches at different times, when we left there was a huge line waiting to get in for another branch. Be sure everyone entering MEPS has a valid government ID!
