Hello folks, I am a newbie and my son is leaving for BC next week. Any information would be greatly appreciated on what to expect and what should he take with him...thanks so much for your reply! Have a great day!
Hi ShellyH nice to have you here at Navy Moms, I will get you started with some sites to get you started. Please come join us at Boot Camp for Loved Ones.
These videos will give you an Idea as to what happens from when he arrives to graduating maybe you and him can watch together.
All Hands Magazine's mini-documentary series "Making a Sailor": These six videos follow four recruits through Boot Camp in the spring of 2018 who were assigned to DIV 229, an integrated division, which had PIR on 05/25/2018.
Make sure he reads this, he needs to pass this PFA
Thanks so much....
If you need any help you will get much needed from everyone, send me a message if I can help. Make sure he takes his cell phone and he keeps it charged, that is how he will make the I'm Here call as they do not have phones for them to use. From what I am Hearing don't bother with a calling card as he will be able to purchase his own at the NEX. The Box it comes Fed Ex and needs to be signed for or a ticket will be left for pick up or maybe another delivery attempt. here is another site on how he will get paid.
Thank you I appreciate the info....
Thank you so much...wondering will he be keeping his wallet with him or will it be sent home in "The box"???
THEY KEEP WALLET
Hey there! Have you received your box yet?
You can also go to bootcamp.navy.mil and you can go to the dropndown menu and click on recruit. It will give you pdf forms for what to bring and what not to bring along with what phoenixmom already has linked. I would link it but I’m not very tech savvy! Making a Sailor videos is a must watch!
