good to know! thank you. This has all been so very helpful. 3 Marines, huh? congrats to you!!

Comment by 3marines on Monday
If anyone does purchase their Marine's plane ticket, be sure to have a receipts for them to take to next reporting station after combat training. I couldn't get a copy of the bill, so we lost out on $300.

Thanx Alex! I didn't know about the ziplock; appreciate the tip ; )

Comment by alex2toes on Monday

Dawn he may have misunderstood the need to book a flight @3 or after. It has to do with the need to be early for your fight to pass through the inspections. Remember to take a large ziploc with you for his liquids. And do not be dismayed when he gets fast tracked & you have to go through the long lines. lol

Comment by Dawn431 on Monday

Thank you! I'm finding a flight for 6:15 but I was afraid to book if he still had to be on base. I should be ok with that time then, as long as I know he didn't have to hang around the base for paperwork or something else. He's eager to get home & we were hoping not to have the expense of another night in the hotel. I truly appreciate your help! be well.....

Comment by WiscoMarineMom on Monday

Dawn431 Usually on Friday they are done by noon (actually right after the graduation ceremony) but he probably doesn't want to have to feel rushed to get to the airport. You can take him out to lunch to celebrate if the flight is later and you find you have extra time before the flight around 3 or 4 (if thats when you get it for). I got my Marines plane ticket too but we had stayed an extra day and left on Saturday.

Comment by Dawn431 on Monday

PS I know he is supposed to get his own plane ticket but I am buying it so we can all fly home together

Comment by Dawn431 on Monday

HI! I'm trying to plan a flight home from graduation. My son said he cannot leave until 3 or 4 pm Fri. Anyone know why that late? thanks in advance for your help!

Yes she can Gini. I am sure your recruit would love to see the drawing and bring a smile..  :)

Comment by Gini Missavage on July 8, 2016 at 10:06am

Can my daughter send a letter with drawing on it (letter, not envelope)?  What if she does it with crayons?
