He shipped out of Los Angeles and I believe there was about 5 other people with him so a total of 6 from CA so he won't be the only California boy. Yeah I won't be able to make it to graduation

Been praying Psalm 91 over all the men and women in Kilo 186. And it brings much comfort here as well.

I sent everything just to SR Colin Robertson. There was never a problem. Just be sure to include FULL first name and last name. Had I put just C Robertson and there was a Christine or a Charles they wouldn't know which C Robertson the letter was to go to. So full names are the important part. First last, last first just won't matter.

Yep. 3x5 or 4x6 size and only something your grandma would be proud to hang on the fridge and show her bridge ladies. LOL

Hello, so glad to find this forum. Thanks Old Guard 2 for starting this. My daughter is in Kilo 186. She arrived in Cape May March 6th. We received the standard letter early this week and today got two post cards from her. We were so excited to hear from her. Sounds like they don't have much time to write.

So confused on what to send them and what not. My son said letters and small photos- So I try to send a letter at least every other day- Then my daughter in-law says that depending on who their commander is that if 1 gets too much mail they have to do push-ups and I know our entire family is writing to him, so he has to be getting at least 2 a day. Also heard that if only 1 of them gets a care package the whole group gets punished because they are now a team. So lets all do our best as a team on this end to make sure they are doing their best as a team there.
What do you say old gaurd? Does it all depend on the commander? Should I add a few more days between sending letters?

Your recruit will not get in trouble for to much mail. The CC's know that is part of their motivation. They do not have a lot of room for storage so printing the pictures on a page and then writing a letter under is a great option. Unless you are sending an authorized item, do not send a care package. You are doing everything right denakallen!

Guardian is right! Care packages are a major no-no unless it is something needed. Chocolate chip cookies might be missed but not needed! That will get them a world of pain. You might have a CC that will use a lot of letters to give extra IT, but then he might give extra IT for not enough letters being received. That sort of "punishment" is one of those things that even if they are right, they are wrong. Serious punishment with consequences like reversion are held for serious infractions. Letter writing is fine and greatly encouraged. So write away with no worries!

Keep in mind your recruit has heard their CC is THE HARDEST one in all of Cape May... but by the end of the 8 weeks there is more love & respect for that hardest ever CC then you can imagine!

I have a couple of questions. If my daughter rides home with us from Cape May does the CS pay her way from home to where she is stationed? And what about her stuff? Do they pay to move her stuff?
Thanks!

The coast guard will reimburse for travel by distance but not for going home. They calculate the distance from Cape May to their new duty assignment. The 5 days is leave so you have to think of it like vacation. There are two options for having her stuff moved. Either she can do it herself or have the CG move her. Your daughter will take classes on all of this in week 6 and make the decision that works best for her scenario. Hope that helps a little. ~Tiff

If I understand what you are asking... The CC's assign where everyone sleeps. Even on ships and in the barracks and A school... You are pointed to a rack or given a key to a barracks room and there you go. You have a roomie. I know a whole group of Seneca non-rates were authorized their barracks rooms at the same time. They walked into the MAA shack and a whole bunch of them were given rooms together. So they were happy. But if just one had shown up, a room with a rack available would have been given and that's where you live.
