Hi ladies I am new at this, my son went in on Monday June 17th. I got the call at midnight and his box last Friday...I have been ok up until the last few days and I feel just sad the last few days. Kyle's recruiter called me to say he needed Kyle's final transcripts for his rank but only told me his graduation date (Aug 16th) but couldn't tell me his ship (this was on Tuesday) so I figured Kyle should have already started training with his P days over last friday I am guessing.
Can someone tell me what day he may be on? I know Sunday doesn't count but does Saturday? I'm trying to follow the day by day online schedule to keep me a little sane.
I just wish his letter would get here so I can send him mine, not knowing if he is ok or struggling silently is hard...I know no news is good news but this is just hard...
Thank you in advance
Hi all, today is a week since my son went to boot camp. Went to the store on Sunday and realized I really didn't need anything! My leftovers are still leftover and my doggies are sad! I am pushing through each day. I am in California, so I do the math, 'it's 0530 here, so it's 0730 there' I wonder if he does the same thing?!
I think we all have to push through each day. So proud of all of them!
I so remember that! I would go to Costco and pass the stuff he liked and think “Oh, I don’t need to get that now.” Definitely a hard thing!
The first few days feel like FOREVER! Go ahead and write your letters. I had an entire stack ready when I got my SR’s address. We can’t really know what day they are on because the number of days they wait to fill a division varies. You’re in the tough first few weeks but it does get better. Hand in there.
Thank you all for the warm thoughts and cares. I received our form letter (strange how something so simple can be so comforting). Now I am patently waiting for letters to come in. I sent my 1st one on Saturday.
