You must save the form letter you get from your SR. It will have important information on it including the password so you can download the parking pass when it's time to go to PIR. Even if you rent a vehicle to drive to PIR from your hotel, you will need the parking pass. SAVE THAT FORM LETTER!

That is all...stand down!

CONGRATS, JOE!
Comment by MarkM on December 30, 2009 at 4:43pm
Most calls will take place in the last half of bootcamp. At that point they have gotten most of the homesickness taken care of and they are well on their way to becoming Sailors!

We have not recieved a phone call yet other than "I'm here" and that was on Nov 12th. BUT, no news is good news I guess. We'll see him for his PIR on 01/15/10 so that will make up for it.

Carlos- phones calls are a reward and are at the discretion of the division RDC. One mother on N4M has never gotten a call other than the "I arrived" call. We've received three or four, I think the first one may have been week 3 or 4. So don't expect a call and be pleasantly surprised when you get it.

Thanks Frank for the translation, I knew I had people who could understand, translating from Spanish into English. The sentences sometimes do not understand, for me it is easier to translate from Spanish to English.In unity there is strength, God always puts people on the road to offer help, that the beginning of Christmas, that we help each other, being part of a group of people aiming to help others fills me with pride and hope in a world that needs so much stair and support. in unity there is strength, God always puts people on the road to offer help, that the beginning of Christmas, that we help each other, being part of a group of people aiming to help others fills me with pride and hope in a world that needs so much stair and support. This is the third week Gustavo my son has been in boot camp had heard that they would give him the opportunity to make a call to the third or fourth week, I wonder if this is true because when the call went late at night and I could talk to, support, knowing that she is the family of all sides that support is very important.Thank you all Frank, Mark, Dan for the support
The Blessing of God always be with you and your family

I had a friend translate Carlos's post, easier than a Google translator, not sure if there was a question in there for us or not...

"Gus, you are not going to believe what just happened. Carlos was programming Joshua's cell phone on the computer but your mother disconnected it and a argument broke out, i was able to program it again so everything is fine now. Then, the dog got loose and lady was passing by outside and she ran leaving her belongings she carried which had a unpleasant smell. "

Carlos- was something lost in translation?

They must be on access list to get on the base though, and only the recruit can add names to the list. And they have to have been added the week before graduation. With the speed of communication with our recruits time is running out.
