For those with children, I would love to hear how you plan to prepare them for your time away at Quantico. This will be largely dependent on your kid’s age, but either way interested in your suggestions/experience.

I found some of this advice here helpful, specific to military deployment. For example, staying up-beat and telling your toddler that you’ll be gone for a little while and have to “sleep over” at work; showing them where Quantico is on a map and putting a pin or sticker there; emphasizing that you’re going to help protect people, like other children his/her age; and keeping a steady and predictable routine, like "every morning at breakfast you and I will have special time to talk on the phone before you go to school."

Those are some nice tips to keep in mind. I have an almost 2 year old. I would miss a lot of milestones... First, my plan is to send her to my in laws. She'll be able to hangout with her baby cousin and meet family she hasn't. It'll be exciting for her and distract a bit from missing daddy as much. I think having video chats 1x or 2x a day as a routine def would help.

I have toddlers and I plan on making a fun little countdown for the end of every week with a little "surprise" they get to unwrap....(silly string, bubbles, little trucks, playdo, kinetic sand) little things like that. ALong with face timing and calling too of course. I love the map idea!

I recently bought a pair of brown 5.11 A/T non-zip boots that I've been breaking in and like a lot...


Your own blanket and pillow, a fan, NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES (you'll have a roommate...), an airtight container to store snacks. Computer/iPad.. you'll have a lot of free time those first 2 weeks, so streaming what you actually like to watch is a must!


FYI - you must register every device you bring (phone, PC, pager...) and WiFi will cost $150 total *per* device for the 5 month stay. So, if you want to connect your phone and PC to WiFi, that's $300. Maybe leave the pagers at home.


I don't know about this man. I spent 6 months at Q, next door to the FBI Academy, and I definitely didn't pay 150 per device for WiFi. Granted, it's been a while since I was in Quantico, but if this is the case now, that is some SERIOUS price gouging!


Haha sounds like I received some bad intel from my AC! I like the rates you guys are posting much more. Yea, this was specifically written in one of the packing list docs I received. (To be fair, my AC *did* say info was probably outdated...).

Yeah the $50-55/ month plan is for 3 connected devices (might be a little cheaper than this, but I aim high to prepare). So the $250 total for 5 months for the faster speed is decent. LOL the fact that it said pager might be a clue to how outdated the info is... anyone had one of those since the 90s?

These are such great ideas. Thanks for posting them! The routine is probably the strongest thing to do - dealt with it quite a bit with mil TDYs, etc. I try to arrange for flowers or a gift to be sent every month as a semi-surprise (they know they'll get something but never when). Websites like https://bouqs.com/ for flowers (and a decent subscription price) and another site called https://lovebookonline.com/ where you can make little cartoon-y books featuring yourself and a loved one (BIG hit). For little kids, too, a touch lamp is a cool idea: https://www.uncommongood...istance-friendship-lamp. Hope this helps!

I won't lie because, you know, integrity - I added the part about the pager. Haha! I am very glad you all have provided fresh info. They must be behind the times over here on the east coast.

LOVE that lamp idea! My kiddos would really love that! Thanks!!



Lot of great ideas! my daughter turns one a couple days before the June academy so I was looking for a good way to stay connected! I was hoping to send back Quantico souvenirs and whatnot to my wife and daughter but saw in the packet yesterday that there is no outgoing package service at the moment. I guess gifts will just have to come off of Amazon and say "from Daddy" on them lol
