My son is leaving for boot camp on November 1st. We are planning to go down the night before to spend time with him before he leaves. Will the last time we see him be the night before he checks into MEPS or can we see him the day he leaves? Any other people who have loved one's leaving for boot camp Nov 1st? I have no idea what to expect as our son is the first in the family to enlist in the military. This is a whole new experience.
