lv2terp, wait on sending any more letters until you receive the form letter, which now arrives 9 to 14 business days after the recruit's arrival at the RTC in most cases. The address available to the recruiter can be wrong up to 11 business days or more if your recruit is moved from the division he was tentatively placed in upon arrival. Your recruit is still pin Phase 1 (P-days) and has not had his initial run test yet. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what will soon be happening and what to expect.
Check your My Page.
My son said his P-day were 10 days. Not sure why. He said he felt like he was in jail. He did say when he tried on his uniform for the first time, he looked legit. I think that made him feel better. He said it wasn’t as easy as he thought it was going to be. The PFT was not a problem for him nor was the swim. I think it’s the domestic part of it. The folding, the making of the bunk, uniform inspection. He said if he can get through this part he’ll be good.
Most likely he was on p hold waiting on the brother divisions to both fill up. Seeing that Navyvet/navymom has a daughter that arrived at about the same time, my guess is they were waiting on females to arrive. Your son could be in an integrated division, or he is in the division after the integrated divisions were filled (yes, they must wait).
Our "babies"...all grown up...young men and women serving the great US of A. So proud of their bravery & dedication. God bless them all. Amen
