My arrived at basic ten days ago and still no letter. My understanding was that there would be a form letter sent with his address on it, not by him necessarily. Then the Navy family guide says recruits themselves send a letter the first week. Well, I haven't received any letter yet and I can't stop worrying about it. I have visions of my boy wondering, "Why hasn't mom sent me any mail?" ugh. Anyway, is it a form letter or a personal letter? When should it be here? I have a friend whose son left the same week and she got her letter several days ago.
