It's been a long 8 weeks (for us!) but he graduates from boot camp next Friday. We're leaving for Chicago early Thursday morning.
We got a letter from him yesterday and he qualified Marksman with the M9. He said the trigger sucked compared to my Glocks that he'd shot a good bit.
He leaves for Pensacola (A-school) the same day he graduates, but it'll be a fun couple of hours on Friday.
EDIT: He CALLED today! They had Battle Stations and the capping ceremony last night. He's a sailor! He'll still be marching in review next Friday.
