I sent you a message and a friend request. If your recruit arrived at PI on Oct. 27th (ship date) then he will be in our India company. Please check your inbox for my message.

I sent clippings and pictures about once a week. I would take some random pictures and print them on plain paper that way they seemed like letters and my daughter kept them with her (we sent a few small plastic bags too). Good luck!!
Comment by KHP- Kristin on October 30, 2014 at 4:20pm

we received our first "personal letter" about 2 days after we got the form letter.

Comment by KHP- Kristin on October 30, 2014 at 4:19pm

We got our form letter with his address on it about a week and a half after we got the "phone call"

Comment by Zackfamily on October 30, 2014 at 4:15pm

We are new to this site. Our recurit left Oct 21st, started boot camp on 27 Oct. We received the few secounds phone call but haven't heard anything since.  How long was it until you received a letter in the mail?  Having a hard time waiting to know if he is ok.  Thanks

We normally recommend not making travel arrangements until week 10.

That being said, if you are sure of the hotel cancellation policy and either have travel insurance or are absolutely sure you can deal with airline change/cancellation programs, you can make them anytime you think is right.
