I hope that is right. As long as everything goes right, that is the way it is to be.

You could sign him out (pick him up) or he can sign himself out for christmas and an Army van or taxi will drop him off at the Airport and he will not have to report back for duty until after the New Year (Jan 3rd) "sharp".....I was at FT Jackson and that's what we all did....nobody stays.....

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 08.....

Yeah, it could work differently around holidays. I just know that he asked to come back between the times and they said no they were changing his class dates... so he could go early. But the class dates didn't change - they just flew him out right after graduation. We had two minutes after grad to say goodbye and the whole group was boarding the bus to head to AIT. Oh well, it worked well for us and I am glad he didn't have to do Christmas away then.

Exactly, I felt bad for the guys whose parents couldn't (or wouldn't) come for BCT family day. They didn't get off posts passes (in their group - maybe it depends on the Drill for what their allowed to do). I wanted to adopt them all, but NOT REALLY cause I wanted/needed some ALONE time with my hubby! ROFL

I believe you are incorrect. Basic USED to be 10 weeks. It is now 9 weeks, but since we are having problems with people not being able to pass their PT tests, it's going back to 10 weeks.

All i can say is consider yourselves lucky. Bubba went straight from Benning to Lewis and is on his way to Iraq in less than 3 weeks. I haven't seen him since Family weekend in July, and won't until if and when he gets R&R. Tough times for the control freak mom. Hanging in there though, trying not to drive him crazy before he leaves. I was emailing and texting him daily and he told me I had to start weaning myself. I try to focus on other things, like the kids that are still under the roof. You know how teenagers love to be focused on!

Yep! Sounds familiar. I have a 13, 16(as of today) and an 18 year old at home. Never a dull moment. I miss him but I know he is where he wants to be, and I am so proud of him for making the decision to enlist.
