Jerry....In a couple of weeks you will receive a Form Letter from RTC. It will contain all of this information as well as her address...so get to writing!!! Letters at Basic are a huge help to your SR. It will also contain a password to download a Gate Pass for PIR should you rent a car when you attend. ..Best of luck to your daughter!
You will have to wait until the Form Letter comes. It takes a little time to get the Divisions and Ships (barracks) set up. It will contain her address in the proper format...but you can begin to write letters in advance so that she will get a bunch to begin with. Number them so that she reads them in sequence. She will only write back once per week beginning around Week 4. Her letters are mailed on Mondays so you will get them mid-week.
My pleasure, Sir! You will first receive the "Kid in a Box". This will contain whatever she arrived at RTC with....the Form letter will follow in a few days....Welcome to the Navy family!
