They do an extensive approval process just to be sure you are a family member. Patience, you will get through soon. :)

I found the Bravo Co Parris Island Group on FaceBook and I requested to join the group a couple days ago but have not been approved yet.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get approved?

Is there a site where I can follow 1st RTBN PLT 1024 CO. A

I've added the male boot Company along with each 4th Battalion group so you can follow that group as well for training updates.

what is the link that allows you to follow your Marine during boot camp? - I was able to find it before she left - I believe she would be in Oscar 4012 or 4013?
