    After a wonderful 8 weeks with some company commanders in cape may I am back to the real world. The information that I found on this forum helped a lot and if anyone has questions about boot camp or the application process I would be more than happy to help answer them.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!
    My son shipped out 10 Sept 2013 and I'm a nervous wreck !! Have read too many of the blogs, so I think I've given myself more information than I should have known

    It looks like his group has been split into two Companies and I would really like to get a letter off to him right away but I'm not sure which one to send it to. If I send the same letter, addressed to each Company, do you think he would get at least one of them? Also, what are the best things to say in letters to help get him through this very challenging time?

    Your son will be sending a letter home with his company name in it. Keep sending letters even if you don't get an immediate response from him. The first few weeks were very busy and it was hard to write. It was great to receive letters from my parents with the daily happenings at home. It made me feel like I had some sense of normalcy and gave me a break from the grind of boot camp.

    If you are over weight, you are sent home. I hope you aren't close... there is no room for negotiation. You might not even reach Cape May if you are overweight. MEPS will stop you first.

    Be careful. You are quite close to that max weight. Some recruiters will not ship you even that close. Some want 10 under the max. Your scale at home might say 203, but if the scale at Cape May says 209, you are bounced out. So just really watch your weight.

    We didn't have any not make weight, although when we took the PT test on the first Friday there we had several people that could not complete the run in time and they we not able to form with the rest of the company. We also had a lot of people struggle with required knowledge and get put on probation.
