Why is he coming home!?? Is he at PI or SD?

hisgirl828 after the initial phone call home to let you know that he is in RSP and is heading home you won't usually receive another call until he is ready to get onto the bus and knows when it will be arriving at home.  It can take several weeks for the paperwork to go through before he separates and ships home.  His separation orders will state whether or not he can re-enlist if this is a path he wants to continue on.  Please give him a thank you from this NY Mom it takes a ton of courage to stand on those yellow foot prints.

Recruits separate for many different reasons, usually it is due to illness and/or an injury that is taking too long to recover from.  No matter the reason, this is still one amazing young man.

Best wish hisgirl828!

Please let him know how much we all think of him for going to MCRD PI!

Having been able to see where my Marine stood that very first night, well all I can say is if I had gotten on that bus they would have had to pry my fingers because I don't think I would have been able to get off on my own!

We are proud that he did!

Hope all is well and that if this is the path he wants that he doesn't loose the desire and goes for it again.

If a different path is meant for him; he needs to always remember that HE DID stand on those foot prints and needs to stand tall and proud for having done that.

Prayers and best wishes to you both!

Yes my son spent 7 weeks in MRP so I know first hand some outcomes of these young men and I will say I have gratitude and respect for all the recruits!! Thanks & best wishes to him!!

he has called me twice since he has been in the rsp and had a full conversation for 8 minutes last friday, is that rare? is it because me and my dad called and asked if he could call me? will he be able to have another chance just to call and talk again? he told me on the phone friday that the day he leaves he can talk to me for a half hour. does this usually happen to recruits in rsp? he was discharged for anxiety and will not be able to enlist in any branch now. and thank you so much i will tell him everything you guys asked me to :) hes supposed to come home this friday, but you know the marines :/

Patience is the key I think!! Lol!! Good luck to you guys and again thank him!!!
