Anybody's family members leaving for Boot Camp in July? I would like to hear from you. I am trying to create a network of support. Thank you.
The one thing I have to say is if he still has his wisdom teeth go and get them removed because they do it at BC! More I am reading the more the recruits have infections and in a lot of pain!!!
So please take note on this.
I haven't heard a lot about infection from having the wisdom teeth removed at BC. My son still has his wisdom teeth (he's a Sailor of 3 1/2 years), but he said that while at BC, those who had them out had 2 days SIQ and were taken very good care of.
Thank you for the info. My son has had two lowers removed already. That cost me a pretty penny so I think I will let the Navy take care of it.
You may want to join the group, DEP-Leavin for bootcamp in July, to connect with others who have loved ones leaving in July and who may even end up training with your son.
Your future Sailor may want to join http://www.navydep.com to learn the ins and outs from the DEP point of view. Craig runs that and will steer you to some good links on there.
