We only sent books from the Commandants Reading List and Pre-stamped USPS packs to return letters and cards...Parris Island. San Diego appears to have a different set of rules.

I'm new to this group. Our daughter has been moved to MRP (Parris Island) because of a small fracture in her foot. She had just started grass week and is devastated. I'm wondering what we are allowed to send in a small package. I asked the staff sergeant, and she said MRP allows only what BC allows. The list we got from BC just listed what *wasn't allowed. Any guidance about packages much appreciated. Thank you.

Tammy,  That's funny!!!  There are a lot of military acronyms to learn.  I have researched most everything my daughter has gone through during her military career on this website.  Even learned what most of the acronyms were so I had a understanding what my daughter was talking about.  

Tell your daughter to hang out with the positive recruits and hang tough! Life will get better.

Thanks so much for encouraging words! We raise girls to become Marines then we are reduced to tears while they go though it!
Funny mom and daughter have most wonderful relationship and in my daughters letters to her, my mom did not get 101 the way it was written ....took her few letters to figure out it wasn't marine term but laugh out loud!

Tammy,  Sorry to read that your daughter was injured.  Hopefully resting for a while will give her legs time to heal.  I remember how nerves I was when my daughter was in boot, even though it was few years ago.  My daughter did not injure herself during boot but she did after she was a Marine, so I have received a few of the tearful INJURED calls. You feel helpless at first because you can't be there for your daughter.  Just try to stay calm, send lots of encouraging letters, take long walks when possible and pray.  Have faith that the Marine Corps will take care of your daughter and they will help her to become stronger as she heals.

Hang in there.

That's where you come in to send lots of encouraging letters. Do sen the poem to her too.
This is only a small detour... she will get there! :)

Keri Thank You so much! Worried mama bear but I know she'll be okay :) She is in FRP and they stated her graduation date will move about a month. I just pray she keeps her spirits up as I know how hard this must be for her! God bless!!!

So sorry to hear Tammy. That call is a very short and quick one, only informing you she has been moved.
Take heart, shin splints may only be a few days to heal and return to training.
Here is a poem written by one very special Marine which I hope will bring some comfort for her 'extra step' in earning her Title.

Has she just dropped to a younger Company and not FRP? Anyway...good luck and quick healing for her. keep us updated on her progress.

A little more info on MRP/FRP:

Hang on, we know its a rough ride for you. Your girl is still trying, and she can still make it. Prayers with you...
Look for a message from me.

Hello.....we just received word that my daughter was placed in medical for shin splints and her graduation date moved a month or more out. I did not speak with them, the call went to my mothers. I left her recruiter a message to get more details and verify her address as she was very upset when she gave it to my mother. My heart I'd aching knowing how upset she must be at this point. Any information you can offer would be appreciated! She is at Parris Island Thank you , Tammy

Thank you! I hope we hear from him soon. He would be starting the second week of grass week.
