There is a facebook site called USAF basic military training. If you don't have a facebook account, get one just for that. That's what I did . I have found that to be my life line. You can go into the discussion tab and click on your son's week group. You can get updates on all kinds of things from BMT and also, you can view photos of each day and might get lucky enough to see your son. Just go to facebook and punch in USAF and you will find the link.
I'm only one week ahead of you, so we're in this together.
