Just wanted to take a moment to say hello to all fellow families of recruits in Kilo Company- Platoon 3089, graduating November 22, 2013.
Today marks the beginning. They are officially in Week 1!
Today our recruits start learning all about the USMC values, ethics, structure and fundamentals in the classroom!
They get to learn about the history behind what makes the greatest branch in the military!
Today they send out the letter with their address so we can start sending letters and hearing all about their experience (hopefully)!
I am learning to take this experience in day by day and sort of 'enjoy' this with my brother while he is away.
I have never done so much research in my life and I hope my brother sees how much I want to be a part of this with him (from home of course!) :-)
I recieved a photo from a fellow recruit mom who happened to find a photo online of our Kilo Company last week during a graduation and I got to see my brother! This got me through the day yesterday!
I mailed enough for the platoon today, too....gotta keep those boys going!
Hi Kilo company,
You are terrific! By the time your recruits graduate I suspect there will be many new friendships formed and while @ the depot you will have a great time. May I suggest if you love seafood try the seafood restaurant ( I am not sure I can put a name here but I can message anyone who might be interested) located just over the bridge from Beaufort and worth the short trip, it is fantastic.
Without your support your recruits would be lost, keep those letters flowing and those protien bars going:), can a teenager ever have enough food:)? You have all the information you need, including sending flat rate, no siginature packages including enough for even the SDI's and DI'S always remember to let your recruit be your source of information:), they know best. Your recruits are fortunate to have you! Keep checking MCRD Parris Island Facebook for photos of your recruits.
God Bless and Semper Fi
Sure, you can name the seafood place, Mair ; )
I would be happy to send protien bars! What kind is the best to send and should I just send them to the attention and address I send my son his letters? I asked him if he wanted me to send some....and i havent gotten a response yet. Someone let me know and I will buy them today and mail them out tomorrow!
Thanks! So a priority mail flat rate box? I bought them today!
The 'flat-rate, priority mail' boxes are free at your local P.O., jenny!
This page is for mailing to deployed Marines, but the info works stateside, too : )
