May not matter with your son but some good advice would be to remind him that all students will 99.999% be piss tested as soon as they return from break. If he’s out with friends or whatever over the holiday doing some partying. No idea if he ever smoked weed, so please don’t take that the wrong way, but inevitably there are always students who pop hot when they return from breaks or block leave and are sent packing. Always a good reminder for them at that age.

I can't even imagine how hard it would have been to go home for 2 1/2 weeks with 2 weeks left of basic and have to return.

No doubt everyone will be piss tested. They have been warned I am sure. Evidently they aren't even supposed to drink, drive, get married or get tattooed while they are home.

the one in the middle is our son. a few weeks ago, waiting to rappel!
I'm sure he's an admirable yout.
But you may find you've been cheated by the pandemic.

(As you know),
parents frequently report that their young recruit has become more attentive after boot camp.

Normally they attribute it to their Drill Instructors getting them squared away.

But in these troubled times, you may be dogged by doubt.
Those frigging face mask straps may just
permanently bend their ears to stick out more,
so now they're better listeners.
[rofl]

Doesn't look that way for your son.
(Tell him to eat lots of Jell-O to keep his cartilage strong).
