My son left on August 28th also. He left from Michigan. I received the "I'm here" call about 7:30pm.
JWTMOM: Were in Michigan are you from? My son left from MEPS in Troy at 11am on 8/29.
Sorry for the typo, my son left on August 29th. We're from Berkley. My son left from MEPS in Troy as well. Were you there for your son's final searing in? If so, we probably saw each other :-)
I was there that day! We probably did see each other:) I'm glad that they are in the same DIV. I know they probably got to know each other well on the bus ride.
Of the eight that swore in that day (in group 1), my son was in the front row with the black/white Nike shirt. Was your son in that same group?
My son also left on August 29th from Michigan (Troy). We got the call at 7:30 as well.
Sorry, my son is Aaron, he left from Troy.
I got the box today, hoping to get the letter tomorrow. I haven't called the recruiter. He said to call in one week.
Does anyone know if it is normal for some of there papers from MEPS to be in the box? There was one sheet that had all of the names of who was in his group. 7 copies of the same piece of paper. I thought it was strange.
He must have been in a huge hurry to get his clothes off, everything was inside out and his shoes weren't even untied. My husband said I read too much into everything. Even his writing on the box looked rushed!
Tomorrow is one week down, seven to go!
It's hard not to worry. I find the more days the pass, the less I'm worrying. Luckily, I've been busy with the start of school for my 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son. Hope you get your box soon Kev's Mom!
I'm still waiting on the box and the letter :-(
my son left on the 29th, i received my call at 8:15pm. short and sweet. My son left out of Connecticut. Just waiting for his bag to come in the mail. Have you received yours yet?
