Hey photomom, I was just wondering if you meant that your recruit got to Great Lakes on December 5th when you mentioned "Shipped 12/5" or if the items you received from them were shipping on 12/5. My fiance got to boot camp on the 5th and I'm still waiting on the box of stuff and form letter. I'm going crazy!
