Hi april!  Congratulations to your new Marine!!

I  ran across your post saying you wouldn't have much support after eveyone goes their different ways.  Nanny commented that we've got you covered all the way through...and WE DO!  I was going to post links in that topic but decided to post them on your page so you could always find them.  

After you son's leave and he returns for the next phase of training, check here -

What's After Boot? (SOI & MOS)

http://marinefamilynetwork.com/page/wab-soi-mos

 

 Then, this group is where everyone gathers - topics ranging from serious to silly -

For Parents of Marines:

http://marinefamilynetwork.com/group/forparents

When your son is through with all of his training and assigned to 'the fleet' or his battalion:

USMC Units (has each battalion where you can meet others who've a Marine with yours):

http://marinefamilynetwork.com/page/usmc-units

And a group for every PDS (Permanent Duty Station) also for when he's all through with his training:

http://marinefamilynetwork.com/page/permanent-duty-stations

We have 400+ forums - just hold your cursor on the 'GROUPS' tab at the top to scroll down the main categories.

We have a number of members who are outstanding bloggers.  Hold your cursor on the tab "CONNECT&SHARE" at the top for the drop-dwon menu and select "Best of Blogs and Links".

Enjoy your son's time at home - see you when he returns to training ; ).

With pride in and prayers for all who serve our country,

No. I haven't received a letter yet, even though I look for it everyday. I don't know the difference in MEPS vs what they did Sunday before they left. Aubrey is not the best with communication. I know the only time I could have gone with him, we were out of the country. I think that was the day he signed. My mother & mother-in-law were able to go though.
At 8:32am on February 16, 2013, Moma peach said…
Very scripted. I would have been a nervous wreck if Aubrey hadn't called. I know you were! I did read one post though where a recruit never called. He got nervous or something & never called. I would have been happy with a voicemail than nothing at all.

I have no close family members active or inactive. At about 8:15pm Mon. If you want to call it a call. It was all of about 10 secs. Did you get a call?
At 6:21pm on February 15, 2013, Moma peach said…
I figured the picture out easier than I did whether the boys were poolees or recruits and I just happened across the Lima company. I'm holding up pretty good. You take for granite being able to talk everyday. Do you have other family members that have been in the military? This is all so new to me.
