Hi, my daugheter leaves for basic training on July 29th and is going to Fort Leonard Wood. I have so many questions about what will happen to her. I have been told by the recruiters that she will be there for 9 weeks and then get to come home for 30 days, I hope they are right. Her MOS is MP, is there any other parents out there with daughters in the MP program?

Hi, My daughter has been in basic traning for one week. She's in C-Co. 1-48 INF BN, 2st PLT. Her MOS is MIlitary Intelligence. I was told after graduation she would only get a 3 day pass. Then she would have to report to AIT. I wish you and your daugher the best.

I think my son is in basic training there. We have not heard from him. Does anyone know how we can find out if he is still there? I think he attended the RSP program first and started basic sometime in May.

Hi My Brother in law graduates the 30th from AIt for MP. HE did not have any pass or any break to come home between basic or ait. He had some day passes on the weekends of AIT but not to leave the base. They are very strict at FLW and chances are she will be there through AIT.

Did you get a postcard from her? My son left MD on Monday July 20. We heard from him off and on through Tuesday, then got a postcard from him Friday saying he would be writing soon. All cell phones were confiscated as soon as they got to FLW. I assume the training began this past Friday 7/24. Anyone know differently?

That's great, now hopefully time will fly by for him.I got a call from her today, she has to fly home friday night.Her NCO told her she didn't need her driver's license and the day she was to start basic they told her she did.They went to renew them and she has a old speed ticket, has to come here, get it straight, get license and then reschedule to go back.Pray for us that she can go right back to basic and not the intro week again. I'm not sure how it all works.She only had a minute to talk to tell me about flight. Thank you so much for asking and best of luck to you all.

If anyone out there knows how this works, could you let me know..THANKS.

My son just left for basic MP training at FLW and he was told that upon graduation from basic he would go right into AIT training. So I figure I am only going to see he that day he graduates and then another time at his AIT graduation. From there I have no clue. They took him here from home to a hotel for the night and I found out the hotel and called him, after that I have not heard one peep. I am going to start writing letters to him as soon as I get the addy. He told me many kids were allowed cells phones that night they had with them, Does anyone know if they are allowed cells phones during basic????please let me know at poohdersdoo@yahoo.com as I will definetly send him his cell phone back as a way and means on weekends to phone home. Thank you Army MOM"S and DAD"S

My son graduated as a MP from Fort Leonard Wood in January.

Right from basic he went to AIT Training. There was a couple day break in between for them, but they could not leave base or have visitors. His recruiter said they would have a family day in between, but that was not true for FLW. Cell phones are taken when they get there, I sent my son with calling cards and after about a month 2 months he asked me to send his cell phone. Their DS holds on to them and when he allows them time to call home he distributes them and collects them when their done. In about 10 days you will receive a postcard of their address to write to them. Just make sure when you address envelope you address it as Pvt. Lastname, Firstname or else it will take longer to get to him.

THANK YOU! Did you get to see him during that couple day break from basic to AIT? So when I write him I can send phone cards? No one told me what I could send or what I could not. I guess I should wait until I hear? Which kind are best to buy for him to use? Where is your son today? Does he feel that the MP program prepared him for a job outside of military life? Oh my this seems like a whole new world to me in regards to my kid. The recruiter here in Michigan said that when my kid finished Basic they would have a graduation day for it. Where it would be just one day the kids would then the next day go to AIT. So I was under the impression that I would go to FLW for his basic graduation and then again for his AIT graduation. Gosh I hope I don't end up traveling for nothing! Gosh Thanks for your information. Do you know of anywhere else I can search for updates, information, chat in regards to his group? My email is Poohdersdoo@yahoo.com I sure could use your knowledge base as a guide for myself I hope you wouldn't mind.

My son is at FLW now. We were also told there would be a graduation and parents day in October before he begins AIT, but have since been told there will NOT be such a time for visiting. So he is there straight through until December. Also, he is given his cell phone every Sunday to call home, so send the cell phone with your soldier! They will confiscate it when he arrives, but return it periodically throughout training. It is nice for him to not have to wait in line to use the phone.

Too late for that. The Recruiter said he didn't need his cell phone. so when they picked him up he had what was on the list and 10 bucks in his pocket and that was it. When people ask me now anything about Recruiters. I tell them talk with ARmy mothers and fathers. Recruiters LIE, Until I meet one that tells me the truth with honesty and integrity and up right moral values in mankind then I will trust them but now with my experience as a Christian mother. I felt like I was tricked by Satan himself. I have the utmost respect for those who are in the Military But I have lost my respect for that soldier who wears that uniform and lies behind what they stand for! Shame on Recruiters! When I see that man ever in anyplace I will voice my voice so loudly he will wish he never LIED to me! And I will call him for what he is. A Liar!
Sorry just had to vent that because it is the TRUTH. They could of let him get stuff taken away...like all the others I have so talked with!
Now I am hearing horror stories about Fort Leonard Wood. Wondering to myself is there any sacred place a parent can go to to hear the honest TRUTH.
