    soon graduating

    Advertisements
    My boyfriend has 11 more days of basic left. do they get more privileges now? I haven't heard from him in so long, i would think he would have more time since he's graduating on April 6th...

    I'm not sure but I would think they would be so busy since they are graduating soon that you would have less of a chance to hear from him. I'd say you have a better chance after the graduation.

    I heard nothing from John in the last two weeks because they went to the field for training, they were still allowed to get mail but that was it. I got a call the sunday before he graduated to make sure I had everything I needed to come to his graduation. Of course his DS's were very lax and allowed the guys 1 phone call every sunday, anywhere from 5-20 minutes. Is he at Jackson, I have always heard it referred to as Relaxin Jackson. Maybe that was just for the girl's bootcamp.

    During the last 2 weeks of basic, they are really the busiest. They are doing all of their tests, then they go on "Victory Forge" or some equivalent field training exercise where they are gone for multiple days spending the night out in the field - no letters, no phones, etc. He probably won't get phone access until very close to graduation and then afterwards.

    Yeah, he's a Fort Jackson. He has never talked for 5-20 minutes! We can only talk for usually 3-4 mins every other week!

    My DH was at Ft. Jackson as well - and we always heard the "relaxin' jackson" thing, but it turned out to be NOT TRUE for his platoon! I think he only got 3 phone calls during his entire 2 months there and if I was lucky, 2 letters a week.

    Im in the same situation. My boyfriend graduates the 13th of this month. I rarely hear from him anymore. It sucks. I just had his baby 2 weeks ago and he hasnt seen her. I cant even go to his graduation cause I cant drive 10 hours with a newborn!! Good luck to you
