    No problem! I sent him a few plastic knives just in-case some of the guys wanted some too. I always sent way toooo much stuff! When I sent my Mountains CP he only had about 5 minutes to eat he ate so much so fast he ended getting sick. He should have access to a phone when he is on his 8 and 12hr pass but I'm pretty sure that they cant have them when they return back at night. So if you get a call Sunday night don't expect to hear anything on Monday. Tuesday should be the 8hour pass and Wednesday he should get the 12hour. After Thursday your communication will be back to normal If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!

    Oh also if you're planning to head down for graduation its normally that upcoming Thursday around 10am. He'll get a 8hr and 12hr pass on Tuesday and Wednesday to get some sleep good food or visit loved ones but he's got to make it back to the Ranger Training center to sleep! If you have the chance definitely try and make it! Graduation fell in the middle of my finals week so I wasn't able to fly down but at least his dad did. I hear it was a great time!

    That is so exciting congrats!!!

    Okay Florida phase was only two weeks and they spent a few days after back at Darby cleaning weapons and getting ready for graduation. Just like all the other phases he will end on a Friday! If you're going to send a care package it needs to be there no later than the next day (Saturday) because the head back to Darby on Sunday. I got the call that he passed really late that Sunday night around 11pm but some other ladies didn't hear back from their guys until late Monday or Tuesday night. It all really depends on how much access they have to the phones and normally they let the guys with wives call first. One of the things I sent him was a loaf of bread and some peanut butter and jelly hands down his favorite thing during those two months. That kid loves his pb&j!

    Oh good! The care packages are a quick way to the heart. Your mail will get to him. I screwed up the company when my boyfriend switched phases and he still got the mail. As long as the Ranger number is correct it will be fine. If you have any questions about when passes are or when to expect a phone call don't hesitate to ask!! Good luck

    Below are a few links that I found helpful when he was going though. The first is just the addresses per phase just to make sure you had them correct and the second is a blog I came across of a guy going through. It was fun to read because it pretty much matched up day by day of each phase. It was nice to have some idea of what my boyfriend was up to!!

    If you have any other questions I'm here to answer them. Last fall I would search and search about Ranger school info and rarely find any answers so I hope this helps a bit

    Hey! I'm glad to hear that he made it through Darby! That's generally where they lose the most amount of guys so good for him! Mail during Darby sucked but it did get better during mountains and Florida phase!

    My guy was pretty good about trying to get letters to me but it wasn't always the easiest. I'd say I got about 3 letters during Mountain phase and one really long one during Florida phase because he kept missing the deadline. I tried to write him once a week and it took about 5 or 6 days for it to reach him each letter which wasn't bad. When they had an FTX they weren't allowed to receive any mail so that would slow down the process.

    Don't worry your letters will find their way to him!! Just a heads up, once they make it through each phase and move onto the next their Ranger number sometimes change as well as the company they are put into! I sent my boyfriend a care package at the end of every phase filled with food and hygiene stuff he wanted.
