coming from where? That is my sons PIRT Ship 12 Div 072,
Ship 11 Div 069
Ditto on everything you said Jim! It's going to be a great day!
You guys with your letter.....I have gotten one. I did get a call on Sunday evening,. and probably have talked to him 4 times. So I felel lucky. Most of the calls have been needing infomraion for his background check. His GF, has gotten 4 or 5 letter.
One week. can't wait, been in prayer for him this entire time. Battle Statsions 21 should be happening at anytime. Hope to meet some of you in a week.
Just got the call from my son. He has completed Battle Stations. No longer a Recruit. He's officially a Sailor now. One proud Dad!
Great news Mike, my son is in Division 072. I know they can take 2 divisions at a time. I don't know if they ar run in order......will definitely have the phone with me at all times. Congrats!!!!!
I hope you get that direct call too Jim. It will be worth the wait!
Same boat here JIM & TIM!! Coming from SE Louisiana! We're about halfway between Baton Rouge & New Orleans on the Miss. River! Found a direct flight via Southwest out of N.O. to Milwaukee on Thursday, by-passing O'Hare, Atlanta or even Dallas! Waukegan/Great Lakes is halfway between Milwaukee & Chicago, so we'll drive down. Then if they ship out Saturday to A school we'll drive down to O'hare to see them off! Then fly back home Sunday. We will, by the way, attend Sarge's meet & greet Thursday night.
The cold snowy weather will bring back memories for me. My mother's family was from North Dakota, we spent Christmas in Bismark one year! Also have a late Uncle (Ret. U.S.A.F. Brig. Gen) was stationed @ Minot A.F.B. same time; we went up to visit, then drove back to Bismark in a near blizzard! It was "more fun" than driving in fog! Lol!
