Hello, This is my first post so I hope I'm not repeating what has already been asked. My son is entering the Navy this month and wondered if there is no contact at all during boot camp? When does a parent get a mailing address? Thanks,
Thanks for the information!
For my son's farewell party I am asking guests to write him a short, uplifting note...if they have children (our family friends or his little cousins) for them to color a picture. I'll tell them this when they RSVP so I can collect them at the party and they have time to be thoughtful about it. This way I can mail him something every day, not just from me as I'm sure he'll tire of my worrisome questions.
Good point about the birthday. My son will turn 18 during the last week. He will likely be very excited or stressed (Battle Stations).
