The July 4th holiday is going to delay the mail service. Most new cadets had to write a letter on Monday night, but it did not leave in the mail until Wednesday at the earliest. Some parents who live close have reported receiving the first letter on Friday. We are anxiously waiting as well.
No mail up here in MI either, but, we got info to expect a call tomorrow. New Cadets will be allowed to make a two minute call in the afternoon. Not sure if it's a squad thing or if all will be calling around the same time.
Just got the phone call. She said she mailed a letter but we haven't received it yet. She did receive the one we sent to her on R-Day from Ike Hall, and asked for more (we mailed out two more earlier today). She was hoarse but sounded good. She was really concerned about not going over the two minutes. The call seemed like it lasted 10 seconds, but sure enough when I looked on my phone history it was 2 minutes.
Got the call and a letter today. Call was shorter than two minutes. As of 1pm today, she did not receive any mail from us even though we sent a letter out of Ike Hall. I guess she'll get a whole bundle one of those days...
