In Phase II, Recruits are allowed to "blouse" their boots and unbutton the top button of their "blouse" and they get their name tapes for their cammies! This may not seem like a lot to civilians but to the recruits, it makes them feel as if they…Continue

IMPORTANT SECURITY AND PRIVACY ALERT PLEASE READ IN FULL:

Do NOT Share Your Recruit's Full Name in Groups or Private Messages
Please do not post or share your recruit's full name on ANY group or message board, and particularly if someone requests that you send a recruit's full name in a private message. It's risky. Please don't do it.

As military family members, we need to be very cautious and more conservative than the civilian population. There is an enemy out there, they are threatening military families, and they DO use social media and message boards to collect information.

Respect your recruit's privacy and keep your recruit and your military family safe. Do not give anyone, including in a private message, your recruit's last name.
It may be very tempting to give out your recruit's full name to obtain the platoon number prior to getting the form letter, or to determine if two or more recruits are in the same squad bay. If someone is asking for your recruits full name, please report it.
