Navy Dads

Down to the last week with my son. He leaves on Oct 1 for boot camp. So very proud and excited for him to start his amazing journey like I did 28 years ago. Anyone else have a sailor with a bootcamp start date Oct 1, I would love to get a group together so we are in the same boat (a little humor to break the stress).

What is his pir date, we didn't get the letter yet

Terry, my son is Ship 4 Div 801 and wrote that his graduation date is Wednesday, November 26th. I thought all PIRs were on Friday and am trying to confirm if in fact they take place on Wednesdays too. Certainly don't want to miss this!

Thanks so much for the info. Me and my wife heard that on the holiday week they move it to the Wednesday. We also saw a couple of people who had SR's leave the same week as ours and they are scheduled to PIR on the 21st. I'm a little confused and can't wait to get his letter to be sure. That's great your son is in one of the specialty divisions (800-900). My son is ship 2 division 903, sticks and drill. Gonna be great!!

You're welcome! I really can't wait for his graduation. Funny to realize we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving in the Windy City too ha ha. I hope you get the letter soon!

Thanksgiving week- PIR is on Wednesday and if there is a Major holiday on a Friday, PIR will usually be scheduled on Thursday.
