This Discussion is for loved ones of Recruits in Divisions 333 and 334. These are Brother Divisions and your Recruits will be training together, so perhaps you would like to get to know each other on here.
My son has been very sick (103 +) ...said the same thing that he did not want to be SIQ as he would miss things and basically you're confined to your bunk for 2 days with no getting up other than for meals or bathroom. He said, "and quite frankly Mom, those bunks aren't that comfortable". I heard another Mom of same div, 333 say that her son had the flu. But we have received 2 letters from him and a call last Friday and he said that he's better. Tough enough to make it thru BC even when feeling great.
My SR is 18 as well. His rate will be AT (Aviation Electronic Technician). Hope I got it right. Checked with the recruiter today and he said the address we have did not change. Told use that 334 classed up really fast once they got there. Please let us know when y'all get the form letter. Nothing here yet!
