Hey guys, the meet and greet event I posted was taken down by the site admin because it is not an officially sanctioned event, which is fine. There are good reasons for it, but I'll not get into that…Continue

Just want to wish everyone and their Sailors a safe and happy Holiday.

I agree, we had a little over 6 hours with our son.  We had planned on spending most of Saturday with him, but with his order change, he left at 2am Saturday morning.  Once again, it was great to meet so many families at the meet and greet.  It was a great weekend.

Wished i could have had more than 6 hours with my daughter after graduation but it was worth every minute.

An amazing ceremony at PIR. What a crowd.

Jeff R.sorry to hear about your son's change in orders. We will see how He and my daughter both do at MA school. A lot of this training group is headed to MA school. My daughter was in Div 330.

What an incredible day  It was an amazing event today and I could not be prouder of my son  The navy gives and the navy takes we found out today that our sons listing has been changed  The rescue swimmer contract was voided and he was assigned ma school  he took the news very well  they also changed his travel orders and we will not be able to see him on Saturday  I think my wife is taking it the worst  we met a lot of great families last night  we ended up at the Ramada inn, it was a great night  good luck to everyone and safe travels

Just got the call!  He's a US SAILOR - serious head cold and all.  At least through all the coughing and hacking, he was able to tell us he's a Sailor!  Congrats to everyone!  See you on TH/FR!
