haha well i just went through what you all are going through! on family day, don't kiss them in front of the drill sergeants lol or hold hands with them cuz they might get smoked. family day is an on post pass and trust me the PX will be PACKED! there's a bowling alley, mini golf, and tons of other stuff to see on post at least. there is a dinner that night as well. graduation is a little better because you can take them off post but make sure you have them back at least 20 minutes before they're supposed to be back. some people were late on family day and boy did they get smoked! depending on where their AIT is they could get an overnight pass for one night but that just depends.
phone time depends on the drill sergeant. after the first 30 second phone call from reception, i didn't talk to my boyfriend for over a month. just always have your phone handy. calls are usually around 6-8 their time (depending on your time zone, subtract hours to find out when it'll be for you). they might even get their cell phones back if they took them to reception. but again, everything depends on the drill sergeants! hope this helps

yeah, i think the website could be down because the 2-60th had the largest graduating class (about 1200!) so every family might have overloaded the site trying to see the video. we got no pictures as well for the 2-60th. it'll all be over before you know it! trust me.

It wasn't long, within the first three weeks or so...But it seems that has come to a temporary halt (no new photos just yet)...We are lucky, I've noticed many of the other companies don't have photos up at all...
