So, my Son enlisted on 9/4 and the recruiter has told him that he may not be called to basic for a few months.  I'm not quite undersatnding why such a long lag time.  Can someone explain this to me?

Donald, there could be a lot of reasons why the long lag time. It may have to do with when they can get him in tech school, that is, when the next available spot for his tech school. The military is experiencing many cut backs and they have to make adjustments in BMT as well as tech school. It would not hurt to ask the recruiter for the reason as well. It should not be a big secret depending on his MOS, that is the job that he will be doing. 

 

 

Thank Sgt. Terry for explaining this and the advice of talking to his recruiter.   And that you for serving our country.
