    When do they start receiving our letters? And when should we expect a letter from our recruit?

    They can receive letters almost immediately. They should have sent out their first letters yesterday, so they should be delivered by this weekend as long as there's no delays.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    You should receive a postcard stating they arrived and what company they are in. Divine hours are on Sunday mornings. This is their time to get their uniforms ready, go to church and write letters. So letters usually get to the families on Wed or Thurs. However this past weekend was indoc weekened. They give the recruits a long list of things to accomplish during divine hours, so you can't exactly say they had free time this past Sunday. Getting their uniforms prepared will take them a great deal of time in the beginning. I would expect a letter on Wed or Thurs of week 3. (not this week)
    As far as the recruits receiving letters it takes a while for it to get to them, only because of the massive amount of mail that comes to TRACEN Cape May. It all has to be sorted and between the station, cutters and regiment it is a lot of mail.. If you write everyday though, they will soon be receiving mail everyday.

    The recruits will still write a short letter home on the first Sunday. All of my applicants have done so over the past three years. It will be brief, because their time is short, but they can still write.

    Thank you SR Dad for confirming that they get to send a letter home the first Sunday.
