Navy Dads

This Discussion is intended as a place where parents and other loved ones who have SRs with a PIR of 30 November to gather and meet-and-greet and talk about this adventure.  Of course, I suppose anyone is welcome. 

If anyone knows of others on facebook and, please direct them this way, too.

Hopefully, this will be a place where we can share stories about phonecalls and letters from our SRs. 

And I look forward, already, to meeting all of y'all at PIR.



Attention on deck!

From RTC:

There will be FIFTEEN divisions graduating Nov. 30th. RTC is abiding by the policy that Active Duty/military retirees and children twelve and under do not count toward the 4 invitations each recruit receives. However, if an individual is not on the access list they will NOT be able to enter the drill hall (NO stand by). Please plan on arriving at least two hours before the ceremony, which begins promptly at 9 a.m. Thanks to all for your continued support of Recruit Training Command, the Navy's only boot camp!

I have 3 letters I am mailing from me in the mnorning and, my hubby has two and our children ahve one each. I want to make sure h has a  lot of mail. Scott thanks for the Group :o)

looks like our sons are in the same division  :o)

My wife and I sent out 5 letters yesterday. Our SR had wrote a small note and put it in "The Box". We can't wait to get a letter or phone call from him.

Scott my son will be a Seabee  a steel worker. I don't know why I thought our boys where together I must have misread. My son is  in  ship 03  Div 021

Our SR got to Boot Camp on 10/03. We still haven't received the form letter. Is that normal?

bet it's en route......

Yes, we got the box 3 or so days after he got to Boot Camp.

Tim hang in there I am sure it is on the way.

Scott any news from your SR yet. Any calls or letters.

My son left on 1 Oct. got the "box" on that Thursday, still waiting for the letter. We die get an address from the recruiter and he said he's in div 23.
My son is part of Ship 04 Div 802.

Got the box yesterday and the form letter today.

My son is also in Ship 04 Div 802 (I think...still don't have any official word on the Ship 02/04 confusion).

@Jack...glad to hear the letter arrived...I saw your post on Navy Moms about the phone, secret code and potential "hoax"...thanks for a good laugh.  Looks like our sons are in it together!

My wife and I will be at the Navy Lodge for PIR.  I made my reservation on their website and followed up with a call to make sure it went through properly.  It was a good thing I called...the reservation needed to be in my son's name.  They needed some information about him to finalize the reservation.
