    For letters and shit?

    they still communicate through hand-written letters and use pre-paid phone cards in basic?

    The new cycles may very well have cellphones in Basic. I have heard this from members in my unit in 2008. They had relatives in BCT who did have cell phones in the late 2007, early 2008 timeline. When I went through in 2003, all we had were a few letters we sent out and received every Sunday as well as 90 second phone calls once a week. This was at Ft. Jackson, by the way. At AIT we had pre-paid phone cards that we used to call our family every other day or so. We were not allowed to even touch our cell phones until we graduated AIT.

    I have been hearing more and more from friends about different branches boot camps.

    USCG boot camp... we didn't get SHIT. USCG BC is modeled after USMC for the most part... doesn't surprise me.

    Friend I worked with got out of USAF BC about 6 months ago... they had fucking cell phones and a playstation. WTF?

    I know a buddie in Army (Ft Knox) right now and he walked into my store yesterday. I was shocked. We talked and it turns out that he was on XMas Break.... from fucking boot camp.... WTF? And he was wearing his name tapes and rank... before graduating.

    Another friend leaves for Navy BC in April and he is allowed to take his fucking laptop.

    :bsflag:Granted i was in basic in late 07. I seriously doubt they had a playstation and played it. Maybe they were dumb enough to BRING it to basic but i don't think they actually got to play it.

    :dunno:

    it makes sense, before you would just use call cards to get the same privileges.

    this is just the next step.
