My son made it to boot camp last night, and now I have a few questions. My husband, who was in the USAF, believes the holiday today will delay some of the normal in processing, since some people will be out for the 4th. Does anyone know if that is the case. I know in the long run it doesn’t matter. It just helps me to have some idea of what he’s going though.
We were also also told at his recruiters office that there is a chance he might be able to kep his phone at boot camp, locked up of course, has anyone heard of that happening? I did send a phone card with him, I just can’t believe they would allow them to keep the phone especially a smart phone. It would be nice though.
I really feel like it hasn’t hit me yet that he’s gone. I’ve tried to talk to him several times. I can’t wait till I can get a letter from him.
My son is in the same PIR - Sept. 6. Ship 14 Div 322. My son had trouble getting to boot camp. He left on the 3rd and ended up going to DC before flying into O'Hare. His plane was diverted to Indianapolis because of bad thunderstorms. He did not arrive until late on the 4th, that was the final I am here call. Since he was supposed to originally be an August 30 PIR, I suspect that the weather delay and the holiday was the cause of the PIR being a week later.
See you there!
I just realized our sons are in brother divisions! I am counting down the days till PIR! litterally, I have a calendar marked out!
ShellyMarie, our son is Ship14, Division 328. We got our letter Friday. So happy!
