Thanks for the update on your son today! Many people have appreciated all you do! I am glad you were here to add security during this transition. Thank you for that too! :)

Thanks Dalene... I wish I had more time to figure out this page but I just don't.  Things have been soooo hectic.  Today, tomorrow and Wednesday the movers will be here packing and then they take our household goods on Thursday. Friday is cleaning and painting day and then it's hotels till we get to Hawaii Aug. 4th.  This move is keeping me busy which is a good thing because when I saw the video yesterday of "Our Marines" :-) I cried and cried like a baby :-) and wanted to get on a plane to San Diego!!! lol  I did get the balloons... did you want me to bring them? If not that's ok I can bring them for Family Day. I haven't been able to keep up with the changes for the meet and greet so if there's anything I'm asking that you've posted, my apologies :-( Thanks for all you are doing!!!  Just as you are proud of your son, your son will also be proud of his mama for all the hard work you've been doing in keeping everyone informed here.  Much Blessings to you and yours!

Have any emails been sent yet? I am also not clear if we are inviting spouses.

What I have seen other parents do in the past is print out small invites to the site (also had M&G info) & sent them to their son.  He in turn handed them out to other recruits, who in turn sent them home when they wrote letters.  This worked well for particularly one group in the past I had moderated :)

You can always call billeting with any questions that you have, but I do believe that it is only immediate family members who can stay in billeting (i.e. mom, dad, siblings, & grandparents).  Anyone else friends (girl friends) can not stay in billeting with family.  I honestly do not know how many rooms are available, but I believe twin beds is the standard in each room yes.

 

As for trying to reserve a room, I believe that you do have to wait at least a month before your son is going to graduate to make a reservation.  Looks like the earliest you would be able to make a reservation would be June the 27th.  If there is something extra going on at MCRD in which Marines would be arriving at MCRD and needing rooms, yes there is a chance that you could be "bumped" and loose your room.  While I've hear it's nice to be on base, we enjoyed staying off base :)
