    Just wondering- My husband is going into week 5 of basic,and has already filled out his dream sheet(according to his blog) so i was curious as to whether there is a specific day of the week that the Unit Assignments(first station) are announced? If so, how long after that are they usually allowed to call and let others know? Im so anxious to find out where we are going!
    Thankss

    Hi Lynn,
    We are going through that process right now. My SR wrote this week saying he receives his orders Thursday or Friday (They usually find out Thursday) (of week 5). Then the calls start Friday. It is friday and we have not heard anything from my SR. But others in the same company have gotten phone calls from their recruits today. They go from Friday through whenever the last person calls home. However if your SR would by chance be sick, in sick bay then you may not get the call until that Monday or whenever they feel up to calling. (I've heard that happening to some folks with recruits in past companies). Hope this helps....we are still anxiously waiting for our call :) Good luck and hope your Husband is doing great!

    Lynn,

    Foxtrot got our calls on a thurday afternoon, so anytime that weekend you could get a call. Also I dont know if anyones told you yet, but the call is very brief and serious, so dont be surprised if they dont sound quite like them. Good Luck!!

    Yea its quite the journey, my husband is in Foxtrot, so I just went through this just a couple of weeks ago. Nothing will beat the first call he makes where its just "him". Well dont get to far in packing because if your getting a moving company you can sit back and let them do all the work.

    Phone calls 'usually' start on Thursdays and go through Sunday. However, like mentioned before, they can be late like mine which was a week late.
    Hang in there!

    We got a call too and before I went into work this morning !! My boyfriend will be heading to San Diego.. weird thing he didnt tell his mom the name of the ship, just that it was 378 feet long, haha! I'm assuming it's the Hamilton? Lynn I agree, it is still settling with me as well. But am very proud of him and glad he got what he wanted! Take care.
