Thanks Chickie, will do The plant closed a year ago and since I was old enough to take early retiement and could swing it financially, I did. My Marine is now a civilian, going to college for Engineering.

Hey there!

The Meet and Greet dinner is now held on base at MCRD SD at the Bayview. There is an event at the Coyote Cafe. However, it is not run by the MC. I would give the member the link to our Recruit Parents Website for Graduation week events:  

I hope all is well with you!

hey Chickie, long time. So here's the deal. I am talking to this Mom who's son is being dropped into Mike Co San Diego and I was wondering is the dinner on Wed still a thing? Is it still at the Cafe Coyote? Is there a time?

Hi, I got your name from the Hotel Co FB page.  I am pending acceptance to the page.  My son Ryan left on 8/24 for PI.  I see some of the other families from his pool have been accepted.  Not sure if the admins need additional info. to process the request.  I read your profile, and I too am a MoBX3.  My oldest is a junior at UMass Boston, my middle is on PI now and my youngest is an 8th grader.  My boys lovingly challenge me every single day!  Thank you for any help you can give with the FB page for Hotel Co.  Laurie Higgins

Thanks, Teresita.  I sent you a Facebook PM as well (but it said it went to your "Other" folder so you'll have to check there).

Hello! I understand you are one of the admins for the Mike Co Facebook page.  I have a pending request to be added and wanted to know if you needed anything from me in order to add me?  I shared the page with my mother as well and she has been added but I have not.  Thanks in advance!!

My son broke his foot Friday, just one short week before The Crucible, and he will be in MRP up to six week. I could hear the devastation in his voice when he called. He's 3rd BN Kilo. Prayers for his morale to sy high please.

Chickie: Do you have any ideas for eating at the beach for Family Day? Got a letter stating he wants to eat there.  However, I don't want to just do a sandwich.  Do you have any insight on this?

What are your thoughts on eating with our recruit on Thursday? Can you pack food? Any help is appreciated, feeling overwhelmed

Thank you for your quick reply.  You have been awesome.  I cannot believe they are getting so near to becoming Marines!

Chickie when did you say to stop mailing letters for 2008?  When do we send last letter before Crucible?

Hey Teresita:  Do you know anything about needing to send Recruits a watch after the crucible?
