Wow - it is amazing to see how many people cannot get information from their loved-one's recruiter. My son left for the Navy on 2/8/11 and his recruiter asked me to contact him for his address. He left Tuesday and the recruiter gave it to me on Thursday. I have not received my box yet, but at least I ahve been able to start sending letters. Something doesn't seem right if some will give it out and others won't. It just doesn't make sense.
I hope for a speedy journey through boot camp for all of our loved ones. I have been happy to find this site. It has helped me tremendously.
My son left for Boot Camp on Monday the 7th. I don't have the address for him yet either. I am going to contact the recruiter first thing on Monday. I didn't realize we could get it from them so soon. I received his stuff in the mail yesterday but no letter or information.
Hi everybody! I got my son's address, or supposed address, from his recruiter on the 10th, my son left on the 7th. So the day I got the address, I had already written 3 letters to him, so in total I sent him four letters to this address. Well, yesterday I get his form letter with his "correct" address on it. Ugghh...I am hoping that it will get to him either way because the division and ship number are correct but the "street address" is not. Not sure how the recruiter got the wrong address.
I wonder if someone else addresses the envelope for them because the hand writing was VERY neat, ha ha ha. My son has chicken scratch. Unless, they made him do it this way.
Well, hopefully everyone gets their address soon and they get the correct one from the recruiter! I got m sons graduation date as well, April 1. We made reservations already at the hotel. Now the countdown begins!!
he'll get it..the processing street address is usually just the address to the RTC.
