I sure have enjoyed watching all your comments and the things you have shared. My son Cameron is there along with yours, he is in Ship 13, Division 209 and will be graduating on 5/31/13, I can't wait to be there. He got married just before entering the Navy and boot camp so I keep tabs on him thru our new daughter in law who we have known for many years. It has been such an emotionally charged past month though. The Navy communicates to her, and he calls her and has had very limited time to call or write so I am so appreciative for the comments you have all shared here, and for the information that is shared. It helped me to understand boot camp, PIR, where to stay when we go, etc. I am so very proud of my son and how well he seems to be doing. He will be going to Conneticutt after PIR to Sub School. He is really excited about the navy and his chosen direction going forward. I look forward to PIR, hope to see some of you there! Congratulations to all of you who will have graduates and new young sailors in your family! A great accomplishment, and a worthy and noble beginning of a career with the United States Navy!! Thanks Guys! While I have been silent, I love to see/read your posts!!
