It's harder for us because of the unknowns. They are busy learning how to get by and what's expected of them. My son said the first week was s.l.o.w. with lots of paperwork but by the 3rd week is was getting real. We are about to start week 6 and its finally going by fast. Hang in there.
Yes he gets them. He responds to questions I've asked and updates I've given on family. Your recruiter should be able to get you the address at about 1 wk in.
I got a letter 3days short of 4weeks...the longest 4 wks ever. And I got a call the same day, not at all expected but it was so exciting to hear his voice and the reassurance that he was doing well. We have only recieved 2letters from him, trying to remember he is still adjusting and lots of testing. We send him 1 letter a day because I know he needs all the encouragement he can get...and encourage you to write even when you dont get a response.
My son also arrived on 1/8 from the west coast! Got that scripted 30 second call, just awaiting on his box & form letter! I’m hoping they both arrive this week! I signed up for informed delivery through the USPS to see what’s going to be in my mailbox! I’ve never been more excited to check my mailbox! I usually check it once a week or longer, but not anymore!!
I agree! I live reading everyone’s comments & updates on their sailors! Nice to know all us moms feel the same way about our recruits being gone! My husband thinks I’m bonkers for having such anxiety over this! Lol
