    Rider - are you out there?

    Spoke with my son on Saturday. He's got two more weeks of boot camp left.

    He said there's still a lot left to do, but that it seems as though they have lightened up a tad on the strictness.

    Served his two day punishment (Incentive Training) for messing around in the barracks.

    Told him that he sounded upbeat and asked if he was starting to enjoy the training.

    He said, "Dad - it's boot camp..."

    Stupid question, I guess...

    Anyway, he said he is carrying the company flag (banner) when they drill and that he stood at the door for the last graduation ceremony and a couple of the senior officers stopped to chat with him.

    I'm thinkin' those are good things. (?) And believe me, my kid is no angel...

    He still has no idea regarding - what how when - for his return home after graduation. I'm planning on flying out there and am going to have to make a best guess as to which return flight to take. It would be great if I knew what airline and flight he was going to get so I could ride home with him.

    Any clue as to how one would find that out?

    Yep,

    Here ya go:

    "For information about Recruit Training or a recruit in training, please contact CWO4 Bill Carson at (609) 898-6969."

    Taken from this website:

    http://www.uscg.mil/hq/capemay/index.html

    Some more info on graduation is available here:

    http://www.uscg.mil/hq/capemay/pow.htm

    Chief Warrant Officer Carson should be able to help you. You could explain you want to ensure you're on the same flight. He might be able to obtain that info for you. Don't be surprised if he asks for some sort of bizarre verification or tells you he'll get back to you. He may tell you he'll call you back after verifying the information with your son, for security reasons.

    Have safe flights.

    The funny part about boot is you don't subconsciously remember the bad things only the good. It's only when someone starts to bring up their recent experiences that you consciously make the effort to recall it all.

    Those were the days! Galley week I put on 10 lbs. It was great because we got to eat pretty much when we wanted. As long as you did your assigned job, mine was garbage detail, no one bothered you -- it was almost like a real job (except for the 4am wake up).

    Keep us posted on his progress.
