My son left on Monday the 9th and I received his box just a few minutes ago. So far everything has happened exactly how this site has explained it. I can't believe how excited I am to receive the box even though it's just his clothes and cell phone. So excited for my baby boy. Can't wait to get the form letter! I am constantly thinking about him and wondering what it is he is doing right at that moment. Boy do I miss him!
The recruits can visit at the Navy Lodge during adopt a sailor. It is the sailors who are on the A school side of base who cannot visit the Lodge.
Wouldn't this apply to PIR visits?
New Sailors can visit the Navy Lodge during PIR weekend.
Trying to be patient but really want to hear from my son....just want to know he is doing okay and that he is on track....would love to see a photo of him in this process....
my daughter left a week ago & I have not received the box - does it come FedEx or USPS?
Salt Lake Mom, mine came FedEx. I know there's been a few on here where FedEx required a sig (mine did not) which delayed delivery. Hard to believe we're all so excited about receiving a box of dirty laundry but there it is :)
My son arrived 11/10 and the box was on my doorstep 11/13 (Tuesday-Friday). I live in Minnesota.
I know I am trying to get the flights now. Your right I do feel more relieved now because I can put a date to seeing her, but I do still miss her and hope they are keeping warm when possible. Glad ours are together. Let me know which airport you decided on we are still not sure, going to call the info on the pamphlet to see if that is any better.
If letters were mailed out Monday hoping to get one from my son tomorrow or the next day. The first two weeks I was an emotional mess but after getting his first letter and first call I feel more at peace. Writing to him everyday helps a lot! #lovemyboy
