Boyfriend left for Bootcamp!

Posted By: Jessica Degler 03-10-12

 
My boyfriend of two & a half years, left for boot camp in Parris Island this past week, on March 5, 2012. Later that night knowing he was on his way... I stayed up until 1:30am waiting for a phone call that he arrived safely? It's been 5 days and I still have not heard from him? People tell me that it depends on there drill Srgt?? and I will get a call/letter sometime later? I just hope he did not forget my address. I miss him terribly and cannot wait unitl June!!

Hope you have heard from your Recruit by now, but if not maybe I can help. I was able to get my son's address from his Recruiting Officer after about one week. You might try contacting his Recruiter - at least you can write to him. They are under a lot to stress the 1st couple of weeks so it wouldn't be surprzing if he was to forget an address. Hang in there and be strong. These sites really help me - talking to people who really understand what you are going through. Good Luck

My boyfriend also left for Parris Island on March 5, 2012. When he arrived at PI, he chose to call his dad. They only get one call and they read off of a piece of paper saying he is safe and then hangs up. Because he called his dad, I also have not talked to him. He sent a typed letter with his address and what we can/ can not send on it to his parents. Besides that, we havn't heard from him at all etiher :( don't feel bad, you're not alone. I miss him terribly too. We just have to think of how proud we will be on June 1st!

Thank You for commenting on my story! I actually got my first letter from him just yesturday! March 17 :) He said in the letter that he did call my cell & it must of been out of service & he was mad cause the drill instructor only gave him 2 tries....but all is well he misses me. Which made my day :) I have his letter hanging up on my mirror in my room now so I look at it every morning when I'm getting ready for work! I wanna try to write to him every day, cause they say thats what keep them going is family, girlfriends, friends writing to them So thats what I plan on doing. I can't wait until June 1st. thats when he graduates. Is your son still in basic too??
