My son left for boot camp on Wed. 11/18/15 from Houston. I did receive my call to let me know he made it. He told me to expect his cell phone. I'm just wondering if any other Navy Moms with kids who left on the 18th was on here? Would be nice to keep each other posted. I'm so sad it snowed so soon in Chicago. I was hoping it wouldn't snow till end of month or Dec so its not such a shock. Boot camp is hard enough when its hot. My son took his heavy jacket and wore jeans, but I wonder how long it takes before they get their uniforms/gear. Some kids just went in shorts, so just a concerned mom. I've written my son a letter a day so far waiting to get his address to send them to him.. Its been hard not having him here. Anyway, hope to hear from someone.
