Leaving from Atlanta. Is there anyone else leaving at that time?
Thanks for all this info. Agree with Holly, it is nice to have an experienced Mom guiding us!
Thanks for the kind words. I am glad to help.
I'm not sure how they figure that out. I do know that if a sailor is being adopted that he can bring one other recruit with him if he chooses. When I talked to my son on Sunday, he pretty much had it already figured out that I was to get the money out of his bank account to fly up there, so I'm going. It's pretty hard to get the money together though for 2 trips in 2 weeks. I was able to find a flight today from Atl to O'Hare for $110 each way, but it's still a real stretch.
There are organizations in the area that adopt the recruits who don't have family that are able to adopt them. Don't worry, your SR will have a good meal and an opportunity to call you and enjoy other things away from the RTC.
My son also left out of Atlanta on Oct 10th - another Nuke program. Still no letter, trying to get in touch with recruiter to get this information. They said the system was "down" yesterday and could not look up his address.
What's your son's first name? We were at MEPS watching them get sworn in and at the airport helping them get on their assorted planes because the Navy Liaison didn't make it onto the bus with them at MEPS. I got to meet all of the boys during the process.
Actually...I recognize the picture and know which one he was :-) Lemonelephant, who is a WONDERFUL resource on this site, will eventually contact you to let you know that you should change your picture so that your son's identity is not shown per the OPSEC regulations.
You son is very nice and well mannered. I was very impressed with him during the little time I spent with them. He really looked out for some of the other guys that were with them.
;o) It's actually a matter of PERSEC at this stage.
Yes..what she said :-)...but I liked seeing who your son was lol
OPSEC and PERSEC will go hand in hand once you have Sailors.
I'm still a baby navy mom, lol. I'm sure I'll learn in time. How long since you were a baby mom? You know so much about everything. I hate being new at anything.
