Hi Pam. My son also left for Parris Island on 7/11/11 and graduates 10/7. He's in 1st RBTN, Company C, Platoon 1073. We are from Pittsburgh, PA. Our son kept writing that he wasn't receiving any letters and why were we abandoning him. Apparently, we were told, that mail ONTO the island is VERY slow. We were heartbroken, because we were writing daily. He rec'd a large stack all at once!! It has been very tough for me too. Hang in there, just like we tell our boys.As a mother, it is by far the worst thing I've ever endured, but comforting to know that there are broken hearts all over.
