We have finally gotten our phone call from Casey and I couldn't have been more elated! He had so much to say. He was telling us he is in a integrated unit and that some had been in trouble and that was why it took him so long to call home, they were having phone privileges withheld. He has been accepted on the drill team and been assigned the duty of Weapons Petty Officer. He says the food is awful and he doesn't think he will ever want to eat as he puts it "green eggs & ham" again. His drill team unit is suppose to start performing for the graduations within the next two weeks. He said three recruits have been dropped from his unit one for food allergies the other two he doesn't know why and a few were taken away by ambulance come to find out the had gotten the flu or something and now they are behind pace by a few weeks. He says he misses home but he sounded awesome, he did say some of the recruits in his group still don't get it and haven't really grasped the reality of being in the Navy, they are still acting like they are in high school. LOL
Well we got our first letter from Steven, he said the food is boring, they repeat a lot of the same things, the workouts are hard but he has made alot of new friends. Five guys from his Ship/Div have already dropped out and 3 of them had to be taken away in ambulances. They stay really busy he said boot camp is nothing like the video's he watched, everyone is always screaming and cussing at them. He also said he misses everyone here and can't wait to see us at graduation. I was so glad to hear from him, he really sounded good, now I hope I get a phone call from him. Hope you guys got a letter from your son.
My husband and I are both from Brandon & graduated from Brandon High School and our 3 boys were all born at Brandon Hospital. I work at a funeral home in Riverview and my husband works at Mosaic Fert. and has for 37 years, wow, we may know the same people. Did your son go to the Brandon Navy recruiters office and leave from there? My son did.
