Hello! My boyfriend is ship12 div 034. PIR date of 01/07/2011
I have only received the one letter and no phone call (he called his mom for the "I'm here" call). Missing him very much and anxious to here from him. Have any of you gotten another letter? Or a second call?
I have written almost every day but have only mailed the first two out. I heard that their RDCs (I think thats what they're called) hold the letters we send for up to 3 weeks...
I feel so bad my letters are so full of questions and concerns. I know I need to send words of encouragement and happy thoughts...
Find funny things to send him and positive vibes- I have been finding funny Navy cartoons to print out for him. Some of the Moms have made up questionnaires to send them. those are good. I went to Walmart and found all kinds of cards to send- but I was bad and if there were cards that had colored envelopes - I found white ones that had more envelopes than cards and changed. Only the ones that had more envelopes than cards, if more cards than envelopes nope didnt take those. that would be wrong hahaha
I have heard that they can catch a lot of flack for what they receive in the mail (like the colored envelops and sound cards). Very smart of you to swap them out! and super nice to make sure the ratio was alright to do so!
