I was worried when I got the "kid in a box" last Friday and his envelopes, paper, and stamps were in it. Found out that the Navy supplies some writing materials and limited postage so upon receipt of the form letter I got today, I sent his first letter along with a book of stamps. Better to have more then not enough. Looking forward to his call I believe will be next week which is week three and PIR August 17.
remember that you are guaranteed two calls....the "I'm here" call when they arrive at RTC and the "I'm a sailor call" at the conclusion of BS21....the other calls you MAY get are gifts by the RDCs.
Our son has a very kind recruiter, so we received address within 3 days. His division is 260, how do we know when graduation date is, haven't received anything from our son. He left 6/21. We are assuming 8/17 for PIR, and would like to know for vacation request purposes for our jobs.
keep checking this link for official TG PIR dates: http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/upcoming_grads.asp
Div 260 date is not listed yet- because the generally reduced number of divisions at a PIR, you may be targeting 24 Aug.....but wait for updates and the form letter from your son
My daughter just graduated yhis last Friday what a great day. It will happen soon for you all also.
