Bmt Calls?

My boyfriend leaves in a matter of hours for BMT. I am so so sad but am getting through it day by day. Some things I have heard says he gets his phone on Saturday if his flight is good.. Some say Sunday. This worries me because I work all day Saturday every week and usually have off Sundays. I don't want to miss his calls!!! Any one willing to share their experience in this area would be greatly appreciated!

I am still waiting for my first call too! If I were you I would let the people I work for know ahead of time that on Sundays you have to keep your phone on, They have to understand!

when my airman was in BMT he was able to call every Sunday! but I didn't get my first call for about two weeks. And i got my first the letter the day after that. so if you don't hear from him for a while dont worry! He will write and call when he can! Stay strong! The next eight weeks will fly by!

Thanks so much for your advice! How long did he get it for? 30 min? 1 hour?

It all depended on the what the MTIs wanted to give them. The first time was like a half hour. Most of the time after that it was 10 to 15 minutes. Sometimes it was only two minutes. But even if it was 30 seconds.. You'll love every second of it. You'll probably cry. He probably will too. My boyfriend show emotion too much but the first phone call he cried. Try your best to stay strong but don't be afraid to show him how you feel. People say don't let them know how sad you are.. I tell my boyfriend everything and anything so when I'm sad I tell him. He feels the same way I do.

doesn't show emotion too much**
