Hi Sarah,

I assume your recruit is at Parris Island?  Liberty Sunday is the Sunday after they finish the Crucible.  They are Marines and will have earned some "liberty" (freedom).  The new Marines will be able to make phone calls.

When you write a letter to your recruit, it would be nice for you to include a self-addressed stamped envelope to make it quicker and easier for him to write to you.  You may want to include a couple of those.  Make sure the envelope you send to him is plain white and not too bulky.

Hi what does Liberty Sunday mean? Also when I write a letter am I supposed to put  

an envelope and my address on it so he can use it?

Have his mother call the recruiter and tell him that you have not received the "form letter" and he can check on it for her. Now it may cause him some "unwanted attention" because they are suppose to send those form letters out, but he only sends one form out and whom he chooses is up to him? Could there be some other family member that he chose to send it to?

I did that I put a self addressed envelope in every letter I sent but the pics they posted today of 2154 or which ever one it was I saw a guy that looked just like my boyfriend so I'm starting to wonder if he's in the platoon 2151.

Keep writing those letters. He will get them as long as you have the Name, the platoon# and the company.

Marine sort, deliver hundreds of pounds of mail daily (opens in another window).

The mail will catch up to him. Try sending a letter with a self addressed stamped envelope inside, that will help him to respond quicker.

Still no letter :'( i hope he is getting my letters. My boyfriend is in 2151. we have 2 addresses for him but when his mom got the form letter he wrote a different address then what his recruiter gave us so we started using the one he gave us but still nothing. i still want to send letters but i dont want to send to the wrong address. what do i do. think some people who have someone in 2151 have gotten a letter. me and his mom havent.

You know him the best .  Everybody's opinion is different, as you know too well, and I believe that you made the best decision.  You'll see him when he gets home.  I'm proud of you for making the tough choice.

Hey everyone! So I'm relative new to the page but my boyfriend is graduating oct 17, and this past weekend I sent him a letter letting him know that I wouldn't be able to join him and his family that day and I just feel really bad and disappointed with myself, even though I know it's be worse if I hadn't told him at all...right?
