My sweet dh just shipped to bootcamp and he tried to message me on fb and I was in the shower:/ I missed his messages...he said he might be able to message me later and I'm hoping he does! I miss him so much:/ edit: it's the week period before bootcamp actually starts. Edit again: at the moment I don't currently have a cell phone i'm working on getting it turned back on, but that might be why they let him fb message me.

Facebook? Boot camp? What happened to just the one phone call and getting letters?

I the other day I read a post from some lady on the AF Basic Military Training FB page complaining that she had yet to receive her "mandatory" weekly call from her DH; and if they were going to be busy, they should have given them a different day to call.


I never knew any phone call to be mandatory; let alone a weekly one...

I'm sorry you missed his msgs :(

But I'm surprised they allow FB..  DH was in AF bootcamp about 10 years ago and I think the only time I got a phone call was almost at the end to give me info on graduation.. 

We wrote letters, and that was it.  It sucked.. I think his was only 6 weeks?  I think other branches are longer.

Keep the phone by you. Shower with it. Train yourself now because that's how it'll be once he deploys.

I was trying to explain to my friend how communication will be with her sister once she goes to boot camp. Apparently she's guard and so is the other guy commenting on her status because he was saying he KEPT his phone in his box out of site, along with others, and used it every Sunday. 

Dh is AD Navy and had to ship his back. We got the mandatory call saying he made it and was fine, but that's it.

Sorry Hun. :( I hate when I miss dh's calls (especially when I "just" miss it by seconds). Hopefully he can message you again soon. :)
