Hi, my son graduates from boot camp on 1-14-11 (so excited). He is a grad n go to Great Lakes. I haven't been able to find information pertaining to their rooms at school. Do they have room for personal things? When I see him graduate, I wasn't sure if I should pack him civilian clothes, underwear, toiletries or do they still have to use the things provided them in boot camp? Thanks so much for your help.
you must be sooo proud of her!! I had read on the 10/29 PIR page about her fracture. Thats one tough girl you have there. Thats something I would do: tell the doctors to do an XRAY so I could get back to work. I got hit by a car while on my bike at the beginning of my week long black belt test and was back on the mat 1 hour later. How old is she? I am 20. I am glad you finally got a call from her... I got mine on Monday night. I am excited to meet everyone. Are you going to the meet and greet at the Ramada? My bf is Joe and he is the Chaplain Petty officer for their division. Im not sure if you have talked to Bonnie May much but her hubby is the Yeoman and Josh B is the Athletic Petty Officer. I wonder if she knows any of the them. Joe wrote to me that one of the girls made him smile this past week b/c she said "Shut up" with an elongated "up" just like his sister does. I thought that was funny. Joe never mentioned when BS21 was but Bonnie say that Billy said it was the 25th and he is Yeoman so they usually have to be on top of that sort of thing. And yeah, they are all GNG. My boyfriend is heading to A school in Pensacola after PIR for AE. What is Sarah's rate and where is she headed next? (It feels so wierd saying that b/c my older sister's name is Sarah). If you want you can PM me back, but my profile is set to private so its either or.
