Can someone ask their recruit, male or female, if there is anyone who is NOT getting letters or support?  Please.

Comment by 1~alwaysf8hful (Pam) on Tuesday

It should be okay.  From what you momma's hav said, this DI has some compassion.  Sometimes the recruits do ask for powdered drink mix.  I haven't seen it for a while, will be a nice treat.

Comment by Joan on Tuesday
I know we can't send liquids, but the power bar company has some powdered drink mix that I sent today with a case of power bars. Do you think that's okay? I probably should have asked before I sent it. Duh.

In getting dropped to MRP my son lost the squad leader position he had just regained by setting a platoon record. I think that bothered him more than anything.

Congrats MarineMomx2. Keeps us updated and enjoy the ride. Parris Island in September is beautiful. Lots of great homes to rent on the water and seafood is plentiful.

Comment by marinemomx2 on Tuesday

I understand exactly how you feel.  We were told by one of his DI's that he had already been slated to be the Honor Graduate!  It broke my heart to know how hard he had worked!  Of course he has no idea of this.  I figure once he completes his training I will let him know.  No need for the would of and could of been....

I don't blame you, I stopped checking the FB page and the other websites also. As great am it was to see him (and my god does he look handsome!) it is bittersweet. To see how close he was and to know he was dropped likely that same day is heartbreaking. :(

Joan - Thats great about finding your son in the video.

I've searched high and low and did manage to find one photo of my son. it was taken when he was in Kilo Company in May.  It was amazing to see that face!!  And he looked so good!  I've stopped looking since because they have since graduated and moved on.  I guess I will just have to wait! :) 

Comment by Joan on Tuesday

I didn't expect it, but I figured it was worth checking.  So glad I did! And he looks fantastic.  :)
