No, right now, he's just assigned to the 3rd Recruit Training Battalion at Parris Island. From now on, everywhere he goes he will be assigned to a Marine Corps unit...and they'll all be different units, ok? Congrats on your son in bootcamp.

Glad to hear that your sone is in the #rd - also the battalion that tigger (my kid) went through - Big Jim gave you the right answer for sure - just be sure to send him a ton of mail every week - believe me, they need all the encouragement and caring you can give.

Of course, being in the 3rd means that he crossed the parade deck at the end of the male graduates and right beofre any females that are graduating from the 4th . Be patient waiting to see him on Family Day at the parade.

Ditto what Big Jim said, but since there are about 25 different 3rd Battalions in the Corps he might wind up in one.
