Which post is your husband at? Things will get a bit looser after a few weeks & when he gets to AIT he should have more privileges. Don't expect many calls. Rejoice when you get one & consider that a welcome extra. He'll be very busy. I can only relate to Infantry OSUT at Ft. Benning but I know that each BCT class is unique & privileges are granted at the whim of the Drill Sgt & also are set by the policies of his BCT command & the post where he's at.
so in Ft. Benning how much phone privileges do you get? and why does it take so long to recieve letters from there?
