My daughter left on November 5th

My daughter left on November 5th for boot camp.  She was so excited to go because she had never been on a plane.  We text back and forth up until she reported to boot camp. It made me feel better to hear the excitement and confidence  in her voice, I know she made the right choice!  I am still waiting on her package they send home and the information on graduation ceremonies. I worry about her as all moms do and it's the not knowing that driving me crazy.

I've read alot of different things about writing letters and the recruits being able to write. So I was wondering if anyone knew for such. Are the recruits only able to write on Sundays? And do they receive mail everyday? And when they get mail can they read it when they get it?
