Ahh... Semper Gumby has struck SOI ITB West. The 'needs of the Corps' duties should keep him busy.

Hi All!  My son is in a guard platoon until Jan 2015.  I am learning the he is waiting to get picked up by an ITB in Jan.  (?)

You could start a discussion above for Bravo Co. When did your Marine pick up to begin training?
I have no schedule so I rely on members for this information right now. :)

Just click + Add a Discussion, choose your topic title and write a note as the others have done in the groups above.

Welcome to SOI!!
My best wishes with prayers through this part of training,

Good Morning Everyone,

  Not sure where or who to direct this question to but is there a way to follow others who have sons in San Diego California SOI Camp Pendelton Bravo Company? I used this page for boot camp and it was great now I am feeling a little lost, thank you in advance and Have a great day!

So sorry to hear of your Marine's set back, his foot is healing and his rehab is progressing. Goods news that he can pick up at the 20k.

Unfortunately the schedule for 2015 dates has not been updated as of yet. Hopefully another member can help with a Company graduating at that time.

I'm not sure how this room works, my first time to chat on the Marine Family Network. My son was dropped to Lima Co for a broken foot and told by medical he'll go back in January. He has to do the 20K hike yet and will be picked up where he left off. Does anyone know if there are companies in ITB that will be graduating in January/Feb that aren't listed here?

Any families with Marines at or almost to the split and moving on to MART?

There is an ongoing MART discussion over here in the 03xx MOS forum.

Here is the direct link:

or this one is good too:

Marines checking in this week and waiting to be picked up with a training Company may be doing 'needs go the Corps' duties like guard duty.
They should still have access to their phones when not on duty.
