    in Great Lakes, IL. Navy.

    Anyway, anyone know
    1. How long it'll take for his address to get to his parents?
    2. How long it'll take before they give him phone calls?

    We got to use the phone once, I think it was around the fourth week. His address will get home as soon as he writes a letter.

    Technically, you get a phone call your first night for about 30 seconds to say you got there safe. His RDC's will determine how many other phone calls he gets, i probably got about 4 went i went through a few months ago, but some people only get 1. You can also get his address by calling his recruiter.

    Thanks! Yeah...I might run by the recruiter's office then, I went once with him, so they might recognize me...not that that makes any difference. I talked to his mom, sounds like the 30 second phone call is what she got. Anyway...thanks again.
