Hi All, just received the son's form letter confirming the address and PIR 5/24 that the recruiter gave me today. Yay!! Only 5 1/2 weeks more to go.
The group for May 24th PIR will be up sometime this weekend. Keep checking the Boot Camp group for the link.
I didn't think they were allowed any phone calls other than that first night? My older son was in the Marines and the only call we got other than first night was on Christmas day. Even when he was hospitalized with pneumonia we weren't called!
Oh, I had no idea! I don't know if my recruit took a phone minutes card or not, but I suspect any calls he's allowed will be going to his girlfriend ;)
I think they can buy activated phone/calling cards at NEX. My son is in ship13 Div 212 and I haven't gotten a call yet either, but he will probably call his girlfriend before he calls home.
