If your Marine reported to SOI, checking in and starting training can be two different dates. If a training class is full then Marines wait until the next available class to pick up to begin training.
Also, failure to not have all "issued gear" when reporting to SOI can cause delays so your Marines need to bring everything issued at boot.

Upon arrival to MCT, if your Marine reported in for training on the day of reporting, they do usually get a few moments of phone use before they turn off their phones. Checking in and being assigned gear takes up a lot of time the first few days so if you don't hear from your Marine right away, this could be the reason.

When the phone calls stop or you no longer have communication with your Marine, it would be a good indication he has picked up to begin training. If you are still in communication, then he may be held over to do other needs of the Corps duties (like guard duty) and may pick up with the next class.

It's time for Semper Gumby ...

If you would send a package with food, it would need to be consumed outside the squad bay.
There is a Dominoes where many Marines spend their liberty time. A change from eating MRE's for a month. If you mail a letter you could include a visa gift card.

You can find the mailing address on this page.

For an "unofficial training schedule" in the words of a seasoned veteran. Please note,  this MCT West training schedule may be different as far as what happens each week. This unofficial schedule was written with MCT East in mind. West may change the weeks around. If you have not received a text or call from your Marine he could very well be in the field for the week.

(This training schedule is only a guide and may not be the schedule per week). 

Week One: Classes and Practical Applications

Week Two: Classes and Practical Applications

Week Three: Range and BSRE

Final Week is the final written test or PRAT, and admin

After graduation, your Marines leave for their next MOS assignment shortly after graduating. More on MCT graduation here:  http://marinefamilynetwork.com/group/soiwmct/forum/topics/mct-gradu...

Great to see you here Lesa and thank you for your help. :)

Melica, just so you know, be flexible regarding liberty. Liberty is a command decision and can be change or canceled by the instructors if they feel the Marine(s) need the time to learn the necessary skills.

I don't think they are allowed visitors at MCT. They don't get liberty every weekend.

There are no set hours that a Company will have libo for.  It's dependent on the day, as well as the Instructors.  Are you in the SOI West, MCT group?
