My son left for boot camp 9/13. I got his box in the mail yesterday 9/19 and an email from his Recruiter with his mailing address. I thought that was pretty fast. Anyone else have SR in Ship 012 Div…Continue
Thanks! I am going crazy! Brandon had been really sick prior to leaving and I was sooo worried about him. I joined a group on Facebook just for our PIR date but there is only 1 other boy in my sons ship/division so I kind of feel lost. I love this site! If you and Michellesp want to friend me on Facebook send me a private msg and I will give my info! Thank you for sharing! I will do the same when I hear from "my" Brandon!
Did your son say why they haven't written or received mail yet? Did he happen to mention what week/day they are on? Oh what I wouldn't give to hear my sons voice or see a letter! I am soooo NOT a patient person.
OH NO!! PINK EYE AND INFECTIONS??? omg...that spreads SO fast....ugh. Im hoping to go to that Sarge's meet - we are driving and im hoping to be in town with enough time to go. Yes, please add me on FB - my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey - did your SR get his pay yet? Mine didnt but so many others that have PIR same day did, im wondering if ours didnt get their DD stuff completed in time to get paid last fri/today and they will get theirs on the 15th?
Any more calls or personal letters for you? We've gotten nothing since the box and form letter - so depressing not to know whats going on with them....
