How long does it take to get a letter from son with his mailing address? He left on Nov 19th.
Guess I'm a little impatient. All new to this military protocol.
Proud Army Mom!!

It will probably take a few weeks. The first few weeks are pretty crazy from what my husband told me. Once they start getting into more of a routine the lettees will probably start to come.

Did he actually class up yet? Did you get the so many second call that he is in "this company"? Sometimes they are in reception for a week to two, to even three, especially with the holidays. They don't get an address til they actually get in there actual location to start basic. Once there, they are so busy starting red phase, it does take about a week-2 from there to get their address. But again, add in the holiday.

The waiting and not know their whereabouts’ is awful. Don’t worry they’ll make them write. ;-)

Hopefully you will hear from him soon. It took my son a few days to get ahold of anyone and give the address. He called his dad, after he got my VM,and then his stepmom emailed me with the address.

My daughter is a senior in HS and leaving for bootcamp on July 28th and I am scared. She is headed for Oklahoma for this and just wondering how did you get through your child leaving. How long before u heard from him. Hope everything is going well for your son.

That first week or so they are in a reception battalion. Then they will go to their actual basic training companies. So most likely he went to his actual basic training company some time around Friday since Thursday was a holiday. So you will probably get that first letter in a week or so.
