Thank you, Txteacher1, for the info!  Is your son in a weapons plt?

Comment by Txteacher1 on June 20, 2014 at 9:23pm
Yes, there are different companies...Echo thru Golf and Weapons that I know of. My son livea in the barracks and they are very nice according to him. They train constantly, so its safe to assume thata what he will be doing. My son has been with 2/5 for over a year now and loves it.

Well, this is the next new thing for us.  Our son just graduated from Lejeune and is assigned to 2/5.  Are there companies within 2/5 (like Alpha, Bravo, etc) that he will be assigned to?  What do the guys do after they arrive?  What sort of living arrangements do they have--squad bays again?  I have a lot of questions...

Hi Techtradition--Once your son checks in with the Battalion he should get his Company assignment.

If my son is a 0612 with orders to 2/5 will he be in HSC?
