hi, does anyone know when the next p/u date will be?
I have the same question. I see these posts are dated a few years. My son is currently at MCT (W). Graduates on Apr 4. What does class p/u look like for 0651 right now?
Your Marines will know more once they check into their MOS location school and get the firsthand information.
It is very common for MOS schools to be backed up...all schools. Just because a class does not start for a few weeks, months or so, does not mean the school does not have other things planned for the new arrivals. My son had to wait for about three months before classing up (in Missouri). He kept busy with guard duty, LOTS of PTing, taking MCI classes, doing maintenance around the base, etc. Many schools do not start a new class every week, so what some term a back up is in reality just the norm for that school.
Ask your Marines to check out 'work parties.' This will keep them busy.
This is a time for your Marines to get to know their surroundings, getting aclimated to the area and creating the bonds between their new Marine 'brothers.'
Here is my search of other topics regarding 0651.
On the what's after boot MOS page listing are a couple additional FB links for 0651.
My best wishes for your Marines as they work and train to complete MCT.
