If anyone has a new Marine reporting for training you can start a new discussion if you know what Company. Pick up/graduation schedule found here:

My best wishes with prayers throughout their 59 days of training.

March is National Reading Month!

The EGA Shop is reducing inventory, so a lot of books are on clearance. Now is the time to shop... :)

This was a couple years ago:

"Easter has come and gone...I was able to talk some to my son though he seemed rather busy, that's a good thing I think. After not having leave the weekend before he's uncertain about this next weekend. Heard there were other who did not get leave..."

Liberty is a command decision and can change even up to the day of liberty.

Does anyone know what has typically been done in the past for liberty for Easter weekend?  I realize it isn't a federal holiday, although I wasn't sure if they got any extra time off.  Trying to plan a visit!

@bocommel most will be assigned back to a 03XX MOS

What happens to Marines who are in MART but are not picked up to start Recon training? My son's contract was for Recon and he thinks that those who volunteered for Recon have a better fate because they will return to ITB, where he could end up anywhere, most likely a mechanic, which is not of interest to him. Any thoughts?

Hello mjk897!  I can relate!!  It is tough, it really is.  I could not endure it without reading Scripture and pouring my heart out to God ...He promises peace to His people...Psalm 85:8; also, MarineParents is a HUGE support for me; so caring, encouraging and uplifting.  We are family.

Good morning everyone. So...does this "leaving home" thing get any easier. I dropped my son off at the airport at 0400 and was able to make it through the goodbye ok, I really have been trying to stay strong for my son but now that I am back home to an empty house I am a wreck. I try to look at the positives, I won't have to wait 13 weeks to have a conversation with him, we can skype so I can see him, etc. but dang this is tough. Is anyone else feeling this way and what do you do to help yourself through. Have a great day :)

Thanks so much for clarifying.  It really does help me out alot.

Hope you all have a good day.  :)
