i'm so sad thati will have to wait that long to be approved. i'm sure it will be even longer before i get a phone call. do they usually stay in reception very long? my husband has been there for a month now.

They did not take the 55% out of the first amount I sent but they sure took it out of all the rest and girl, my husband has been in reception for a whopping 253 days and counting..................not cool at all. That is the reason I drive up there every Saturday and Sunday. If I didn't, our relationship would be so strained right now without any phone calls. I mean, don't get me wrong, we both write eachother every single day but it's not the same. If we didn't have such a strong friendship, I don't know where we would be.

I'm not sure if its better but mine is also in B5. They moved him there from B-2...either way, it sucks not being able to talk to him on the phone. I got a little spoiled when he was at NCCF. I talked to him everyday sometimes twice a day Now nothing...we write and wait for the weekend...

Don't worry, but that is easier said than done. Send him a stationary package. It can include about 150 sheets of paper, 40 envelops and 40 stamps. You cannot send him any pencil's or pens. He can buy a pen when he goes to store. Send him a some money throught jpay.com until his money follows him from the county. That is about the most you can do right now. He might not be able to contact you if he doesn't have anything to write with. My husband sent his first letter on that brown envelop with the metered mail stamp that they give them. He included the visiting form with that first letter too. Remember he can't bring anything with him from the county except for pictures and cards so he won't have one single thing to communicate with. Good luck and welcome..........the women here are a great resource.

Girl I am the wrong person to ask because it's 279 days and counting for mine in reception.............They're supposed to be mainlined within 90 days. And no, I have not heard that B yard is dangerous.

When there in reception they can't get packages , you will have to wait until he gets mainlined to send the packages.
