I just went to the recruiters office and our son's platoon number is in the system. Ready, call!

Thank you, i will try that.  It seems so long to wait until the letter comes!

I also called the local recruiter, but was told that I would know my son's address before they do. :( Is there someone else I could contact who could look my son up? Help, please!

Hi Everyone !

Like many of you I will have to wait until a letter arrives from my recruit but I can do that .

I have been here before as I just became a Marine Mom on July 13th, when my oldest son Graduated boot in San Diego. So this is a repeat journey for me.


Please know I am hear should you need to talk or vent . I could not have made it without this website and the friends I made.


Stay strong and remember no matter how hard this is on you trust me it is HARDER for your RECRUIT.

Email me if you need to me!


Bless you all !!!


OOH RAH !!!!

When  your son gets to send his first letter home, which will be pre-written by the Marine Corps , he just signs it, his address will be in the letter, with the Platoon and the company he is assigned  to. Good Luck for your son.
