Hello! Are there any parents of Sailors beginning A-School in San Antonio, TX on June 10th? My daughter graduated from boot camp on May 24th of May. I was just wondering if any other parents had Sailors in the same class.
My daughter has already been through A school and is stationed now at Camp Lejuene. I could not find anyone when I first posted, however, I went back to the FB site where her Boot Camp Group was and just posted in the Division. I went to School in San Antonio, so I was familiar with Fort Sam. Her Dorm's are VERY NICE. They are very new...At first I was in FREAKOUT Mode to think this 21 year old CHILD of mine was going to be in San Antonio alone, however, the groups they are in really bussy up and take good care of each other. I told my Sarah some ground rules before she left, and one of them was to get a female buddy and NEVER go downtown without her. I also told her no marriage in A school...that happens a lot because they have been in Boot Camp and finally get some sense of Freedom. Unless your Daughter has a car, she would have to get a ride or walk to the BX on base. The Medical Clinics are right across he street from the dorms. They keep them so busy, they really have holidays and weekends to do anything. We visited while I was down there for business and stayed close to the Airport, we went to Sea World and that was a blast, as Military members get in Free. She will also be right next to the Air Force Dorm of Medical Group, they have their own classes. My best wishes to your Daughter, she will do fine...My Angel under glass did well in A school...Reach out if you ever want to talk...Carol Hanna
My son will be going to A school soon do you know what airport they left out of after bc? Trying to coordinate my trip so I can spend as much time with him. Did she have to go through the field medic training as well? From what I read a lot of the male recruits go that route wasn't sure if they had no choice. Glad to hear your daughter is doing well.
