Hi.. this may be a silly question but when do they get their mail? is it daily or just one day a week? My daughters form letter just came and want to send out her letters. Just curious how long she has to wait to get them. Thanks :)
Mail Call is every weekday (Monday through Friday) evening before Taps once the Recruit Mail Petty Officer has been trained. See Letter Writing & Fun Stuff/Questionnaires to send to your Recruit.
You'll figure out a rhythm to how long the mail takes after the first few weeks. I send a letter every weekday but my son wasn't getting a letter on Thursdays because it takes 4 days to receive them and that would have been the Sunday letter. The time may vary for you based where you are.
What I do is send out a letter Monday through Friday and then an additional letter through Sandboxx on Wednesday to cover Thursday. So I send him 6 letters a week. When he called I asked him whether it was too much or if he was embarrassed by so many letters and he said, "Absolutely not! They help a lot"

Your info is helpful though.
I followed an email link that sent me to this discussion, I thought it was new. Whoops!
