Hello and thank you for the welcome. 

This site has already been a huge help for me. I have been using its content to clarify many of the gaps in my knowledge while writing about my family's experience with RTC, PIR, and the early days of our daughter's service. I am adding this page as a resource for my readers, and acknowledgement to my book (I hope this is ok).

My book is almost finished. I am only working on some final information and resources. When I get closer to wrapping up in the next couple of weeks, I would be honored if you and any other admins would be willing to accept free copies of the book and provide any feedback or insight before publication. While I have my daughter and several other resources helping me to ensure accuracy, the more eyes on it the better.

Also, what are the policies on me adding this site and the facebook in the book, on my webpage, and in my facebook pages?

Thanks again for welcoming me. Furthermore, thank you for creating and maintaining such a wonderful resource for parents. This is an amazing site, and I am glad to be a part of it.


Regards,

Ruel Knudson

Thank you Jim!  I appreciate the time and effort you and the team put into keeping military parents informed.  My husband spent 10 years in the Navy.  I retired after 26 years with the AF, and am still an AF civilian employee.  So we both know that your work here to keep families informed goes a long way!

thanks for the welcome message, Jim. That is what I am hoping to get out of this site...answers to questions, advice, and support. My son hasn't been in boot camp a week yet and the post on When is PIR and What is Their Mailing Address has already helped. I know now that I have to wait for his first form letter with Ship/Div assignment and address.

I am excited and nervous, but certainly proud of him for taking on this responsibility. It is the start of an incredible journey for him!

Thanks for the warm welcome. My son has his PIR next Thursday November 9. Looking forward to seeing him and see the man he is becoming! Can't wait for this new journey to begin.

Thank you for the warm welcome, Jim.  Looking forward to connecting with those who understand what we will be going through as our son embarks on his Navy journey starting with OCS and who can help answer questions we have or provide advice. We are very proud of our son for taking this big step, but both he and we approach this major change and step into the unknown with some trepidation!

Thank you very much Jim.

Receiving  letters from our son has given us pride for all the young men and women that have sacrificed and dedicated their livelihood to serve and defend. 

At 10:05am on January 19, 2023, Joe Marquez said…

Thank you Jim, for considering my request to join. My Grandson is very excited to start the OCS training and will fly out tomorrow 01/19/2023 Class 09-23.

Thanks Jim glad you have this board 

At 10:40am on November 30, 2022, Charlie Cruit said…

My son is in his first week of OCS and his class will run into X-Mass and New Year so it is possible for his 13 weeks to be 15. Don't know what his class number is yet.

Thanks Jim! I'm on the FB group. Connor leaves on Monday for RTC. Excited to see where it takes him. Go Navy (except when they play Army lol)
