My Baby Boy left yesterday, Monday June 20th

Posted By: Rhonda Lanham 06-21-11

 
My son left yesterday to start his adventure as a Marine. It was so hard to say goodbye and send him off alone to bootcamp. It has been just the two of us for over 8 years and watching my world load the bus was the hardest thing I have ever done. I am so proud of his of him and knowing that I had raised a future Marine is just beyond words. Now I am counting to when I join him in his graduation when I can proudly say "My son is a Marine".

I got a letter from my son..I never did recevie the form letter. I received a 2 page hand written letter from my son. He said everything is going smooth for the most part, that the days run into each other. He wrote it in June 27th so it only took 5 days to get to me. He is in 2nd Bn F co Plt 2076....so the address the recruiter gave me is correct. He didn't mention if he had received any of the letters I sent him. He went to PI on Jone 20th

I have only recd the one call that he has made it there. I have not recd a letter from him yet. I read on the recruitparents.com that they are so busy to not be upset if you dont hear anything because they are learning and doing so much. They said just know that "no news is good news." That is what I have been hanging on to. I did get his address and now have started sending letters and cards to let him. If you have not received his address see your recruitor. He should have it by now. My son is in 1st BN, Bravo Co. PLT 1033.

My son left for San Diego on June 20, 2011 and I got his address letter on June 28 and I sent him a letter already. I'm ever so proud of him but I do miss him. His Platoon is 1035... is there another site to connect with other parents that are going thru the same situation? I Pray for my son and all of your sons and daughters all the time. God Bless them all and God Bless the United States of America and Happy 4th of July.
