Hi, I was just wondering if they are allowed to take anything with them to A School such as a cell phone, laptop, their own clothes, etc. If so, do we bring that stuff with us to graduation? Thank you for your input!!
First of all when is graduation, 2nd where is A school and 3rd are they G&G?
I peeked at your profiel page...so he's leaving in April? Here is a group for you to join to connect with April DEPers http://www.navyformoms.com/group/leavinforbootcampinapril
If his A school is in Great Lakes, then if he is Grad and Go (He'll find out a few weeks before he graduates) he can have his stuff immediately, if A school in GL: and NOT G&G...there are storage lockers you can rent till he's able to have them.
If his A school is elsewhere and he is G&G...you can meet him at the airport and give the stuff to him there, If A school elsewhere and he is not G&G you'll have to ship it to him after you get his address
They won't need their civvies for a few weeks, they have to class up. Usually they canhave their laptop, cell immediately
Once they class up (my son's A school is 13 months, he classed up in a few weeks), they can have whatever they want as far as clothes, electronics, etc. We waited until he classed up before we sent the laptop along with some jeans, tshirts, polos, etc. He bought a phone out there because the T Mobile reception was not good on base and because he wanted to start building his credit and a cell phone seemed like a good place to start.
Hi everyone, my son doesn't leave for BC until April 20th. His A School is in Pensicola FL and I think its about 6 weeks long. How do I find out if he's a G&G? Do they have a decent amount of freedom in A School as opposed to BC? I know there's no freedom at BC nor much time to call or write. I hope its different when they go to A School so I can talk to him more. Also what is "class up"? Thanks for helping me with all of this!! I really appreciate it!!
cathy your rct will let you know if he is G&G about 4 or 5 weeks into boot camp.
yes A school is much more relaxed then boot camp. Classing up is when they are given more privileges such as wearing civvies, able to leave tha base, drive a car, etc
Thank you for all this information!! I would be totally lost without this site. I feel as though I will be more prepared for when he goes. Its funny how I keep giving him tidbits about the information I'm getting here. I'm telling him what to be prepared for as opposed to him telling me!! LOL Thanks again!!
when they go to a school in great lakes are they alowed visits there anytime
