    He will move into phases that allow more freedom, and you will hear more from him. My husband went through boot camp at Jackson when our second child was born. After the baby was born, they let him have a few extra phone calls. I don’t think you can go to AIT with him, but after that you should all be together. It was slightly different for us, since my husband went to OCS after basic, but that’s how it went for us.

    In a couple years, 9 weeks of boot camp will seem like nothing. I’m on my second deployment now, with three kids. It’s a tough life, but once you get to your duty station, you will find more support.
