How long they are away, can I call after basic? Can I send him things?

My dh is National Guard. Do you have any specific questions about the NG?

Basic is 10 weeks, when he's in AIT you can call him if he has his own phone. I'm not sure about sending things. I know in basic you can not (besdies pictures) but I'm not sure about AIT.

It's right around 5 1/2 months or so. But it depends on his MOS, but he will come home for Christmas. My dh left for basic in August 2008 and came home the start of February, with a 2 week break for Christmas.
