My son also left on Nov. 5th, 2012. His Platoon is 2012, 2nd BN, Hotel Co. And he graduates Feb. 1, 2013. Please let me know if your son is in the same Platoon...Thanks

Yes, my son left from Harrisburg MEPS on Nov. 5th. He is in 2010 Hotel Company, 2nd Battallion. His name is Kyle Crossland. What is your son's name and where are you from? He will be graduating (fingers crossed) Feb. 1st. I believe their were orginally 70 in his platoon and now there are 66 so evidently some recruits were asked to leave or dropped out. Feel so bad for them. It's got to be really really tough enduring all the training. One of the biggest concerns my son and I had was swim week but, apparently, he made it through, or I'd be hearing by now that he was dropped. So, so proud. They either have completed or are in the process of the Rappel Tower and the Gas Chamber. Good luck them all!!

Please write back. I'm hoping to have some dialogue with other mothers in the my son's platoon. Thank you!

Wow I just found this website and was so excited to see your post. My son, Philip left Nov 5 for Parris Island also. He's in the 2nd Battalion, H Company, graduating Feb.1, 2013 also. I have received many letters from him. He says he is having "fun". He tells me it's very hard and challenging, but he is a determined young man.

I'm so happy to connect with other parents, as I am a novice with the military, much less a Marine Recruit Parent.

I hope to hear from many other parents.
