A few of the members here will have DS/DD graduating TBS very soon. Congratulations to you and your children! The long journey is being completed for them and a new one is beginning. How very proud you all must be! My DS is expecting to head that way in September. I am planning ahead and just asking for any general advice. Such as how much room will he have to store his things, does he take a lot with him or just wait until he's there to buy things such as base layer winter clothing? I believe they have a Marine store at Quantico so if he needs things like new boots he can get them there. Is that so? I would love for him to be able to get a summer job doing what he went to college for, cyber security. True learning begins with on-the-job training, IMO. But he says that would not be fair to an employer. I know reporting dates can be adjusted. Do you have any idea how much notice they would give someone? Should he keep his things all packed and ready to go? Thank you for any advice. Me being the mom who tries to anticipate everything I'm sure I will probably find some more questions along the way.
