Basic Training

Posted By: Julie Jones 07-17-11

 
Can anyone tell me if the basic training 12 weeks on the website at Parris Island is the same exact schedule they keep every time? Is it the same schedule used in MCSD? I am trying to keep up with what my son is doing and where he should be at and basically just follow along. He will start week 4 Monday 7/18. According to the website he will then be doing Pugil Sticks.

My son left for Parris Island on June 6th. I miss him so much but I am very proud of him. He is going to Graduate on Sept 2 and Me, my Mom and Daughter are flying down...I can't wait to see him :) It is my understanding that he will be very different but I hope he is still my loveable and caring boy. I haven't heard from him in a while :( I guess he may be out in the field training for the Crucible? I have followed the schedule giving to me by his recruiter..but it is also available on the Parris Island.com site. I sent a copy to Justin with the dates on it once I knew for sure what day he was Graduating.
I have recieved many letters from Justin and with every letter my boy becomes a man. I would love to hear from other Mom's and Dad's that have children at Parris Island in Basic Training right now. Thanks for listening and good luck to all the Family and friends awaiting the completion of Basic Training..I have 2 weeks until I fly out to see my boy and I cant wait!!!

I was only going to the Marine.com web site and then I would click on the 12 week tab at the bottom left hand of the page.

I would also like you to know that on Marineparents.com there is a ton of useful information. I go back and forth from them to here.
