My grandson is in boot camp, he graduate 06/01/12. We have not received a letter from him going on two weeks. very concern. I pray all is well, not only for my recruit but for every recruit and marine. Is there anyone else that has not received letters within that period of time? Co. G platoon 2040..God bless us all!!!

My son and daughter-in-law just got 'the form letter' telling them where to write. I am so glad it came today because everyone was anxiously waiting! I guess I need to get busy writing!

Geez, I am sorry, I don't know the exact time frame, I'm going to say almost a year? But they had other things going on, lost a little angel-baby girl 2 days before she was due to come into this world.  They are in recovery mode now and preparing to move to Fl from SC.  As my grand sons Dad says who was a Sgt in the Corp, the Corp takes it's own time.  Will keep your grand daughter in prayer!

Thanks Nana for your reply... How long after the surgeries did you nephew have to wait to be Medically discharged?

Comment by nana on March 7, 2012 at 7:07pm

So sorry to hear about your grand daughter! My nephew was injured in Afghanistan , went through several surgeries and did not respond well , he has been medically discharged after a very long time.  Hopefully, her injuries are not permanent and she will be able to finish up with her MOS and off to do what her heart desires!

My Grandaughter is in Pensacola FL for her MOS last September, she injured her knee, had her Medboard papers sent to DC 3 months ago and hasn't heard yet what her status is!!! She really wanted to make a career in the Marines, anyone else with a or gone thru a situation like this?

Grandson Kipp graduates March 30th from Camp Pendleton (2141)- I will be there with his Dad and sister - can't wait.

My Grandson graduates tomorrow March 8th 2012 from his MOS training at Camp Pendleton. Then he will be leaving to go to Camp Lejeune, NC to join a unit there with the Assault Amphibious Vehicle team which he has been training for in his MOS. I live in San Diego and have enjoyed having him at Camp Pendleton and being able to visit him on weekends and taking him places since most weekends they have free time to do what they want. I will really miss having him here, tomorrow will be a sad day for me and grandpa.
