An Outreach Program of MarineParents.com
My boyfriend is a poolee right now so I am preparing myself for him leaving in July for boot camp. Still having a hard time dealing with things. I support his decision completely and will stand by him through it all, but any advice on dealing with him being gone when he leaves? Thanks so much
Is there a special diet poolees should be on before bootcamp?
My boyfriend left yesterday to go to Parris Island, Im still trying to figure out the best way to go about coping with this long bootcamp. I have a journal I plan on writing in everyday that he is gone. But I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to cope.

Is there any site where we can find Marines' Ball photos?
In a very short time I have a Poolee that will become a recruit. Like all of you, I am filled with pride and anticipation.
I told my son that I envy him. The things that he will see and do, the sense of accomplishment that comes from working as a team and the satisfaction of a job well done will be amazing.
However, I can't shake the feeling that I am being robbed.
Over the next 4 years ( at least ) I am not going to be there for a lot of the firsts that are going to…
Finally on September 1, 2016 after 21 weeks on PI (8 weeks in MRP) my Son earned the title of US Marine! He is currently at MCT expected to graduate October 11, 2016. So glad he is finally on track to his career. His 22nd birthday soon!
My boyfriend is currently at SOI ITB at CP. His MOS is 0331 (machine gunner). He said there's a good chance he may be stationed at CP when he graduates. Does anyone know if the different 03xx usually get stationed at certain PDS's? For example, do most 0331's get stationed at the same base?
A post on the MFN FB page for SOI ITB West said that:
Hi all, hope everyone is doing well. I'm sorry to post here, I'm just having trouble finding another support group and I really need some advice. I've been with my boyfriend for a year and a half. We've survived long distance, bootcamp, and MCT, and much more. He's currently in his second week at Pensacola for his MOS and is supposed to be there for at least a year. We've been in a pretty good spot with each other--I wrote him every day while he was at basic, and I got letters from him one…Continue
I recently read alot of the Blog Post about this type of thing...and it gave half answers to the questions in my head. But, None had what i'm going to tell you about why mine is so different and confusing...( he is a Marine in Training )

I'm trying to find papa company , Parris Island with a grad date of 9/30/2016 . Can anyone help ? I thought this site would make things easier . But if your just starting and don't have friends it is kind of a PITA .
Our son is back from the other side of the world. We are adjusting as well as expected. However, while he was gone, we got a new cat and LCPL BabyMan, has plenty to say about how I treat her.
"You spoil her."
"What else am I suppose to do with her?"
"She doesn't need three scratch posts, Mom."
"She does if she doesn't want to get declawed. I can't have her scratching up my furniture. I hate that. And I don't want to declaw her, and she…Continue
