so just after I wrote this.. I was very excited and surprised I got a second safe call from my daughter...she sounded so good!!! I wasn't expecting the call since a got a call the night she arrived at boot camp at 10:30 pm!! Boy that just made my day!!!!
my brother left on the same day! we called his recruiter to get his address, but have not gotten his form letter yet
Hi Sammy, I haven't gotten my daughters yet either but when I talked to her today she said they just mailed the box with an address yesterday so i'm thinking it should be here in the middle of next week.Have you heard from your brother?
Sammy, Double-check the address the recruiter gave you against those at http://bootcamp.navy.mil/contact_recruit.asp. Recruiters sometimes give a generic address for the RTC and if the street address is not correct, then mail can be delayed for up to 3 weeks. Know that letters mailed before you get the form letter do not get to your recruit much quicker, if at all, than letters mailed after receiving the form letter because the recruits cannot receive mail until they are in their ship and a Recruit Mail Petty Officer has been trained in how to handle mail, which means it is usually sometime in the third week or later when they start receiving mail depending on when P-days ended and the division formed.
You are very welcome.
Join the group, DEP-Leavin for bootcamp in November, andyou will find others with loved ones who shipped this week. You may want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms, PIR Reference Information, and New Members Stop Here. Once you know your SR’s PIR date and/or division number, watch in Boot Camp Moms and/or at http://www.navyformoms.com/forum/topics/groups-listed-by-pir-date and join the group for that once it has been created.
