An Outreach Program of MarineParents.com
Well STC is a Medical hold. So he is not back in training yet. I def would not use the sandboxx app. He is going to need all the support you can muster. It is very easy to get down on yourself when you are sick & unable to do the things you want to do. Then he's use to instant communication and he is not thinking about the fact that his address is changing every time he is moved some where else. So don't be surprised if you get a letter from him about why haven't you written. Just keep writing. And maybe you can tell him about the craziness of snail mail and that it is a long wait for you too. Letter don't have to be about BIG EVENTS!!!! Letters can be a conversation with another person who just happens to be some where else. hahahaha
Remeber, she can write too. lol and short notes are better than no notes. I used to leave a pad & pencil on the table to jot down quick notes.
Send photos of the birthday girl to him, they can have photos.
And As a single parent, I do understand. You can only do what you can do. Take care of yourself.
You might try to contact the recuiting station or his Recuiter to get an address to mail him. I ordered a matrix for my sons plt It has what their intire schedule is while at camp up to graduation. I ordered it from www.egashop.com.
Rick, you don't have to buy iy, you can download it for free from the internst. And Kassandra, you are correct, it is not going to help you right now. Once he starts traing again, then yes, it is fun to follow along.
