Thanks for all you do. I'm believing that she will pass. Not by her might or power but the Spirit of the Lord. 


that is wonderful news. I said I never understood the depth of the effects on the families of the enlisted and recruits. something is being worked out in us as well. Glad for you and your recruit. I love this site.

GranmaFaye, she is currently in FIT. If she passes the PFA on Monday or Wednesday, then she may be able to have BST and then have PIR with her division.
Comment by GranmaFaye yesterday

Just reading some of the posts. I got the call today that my granddaughter recruit failed PFA. However, she was able to tell me that if she passes by Wednesday, she will still PIR next Friday. I have read some situations on here that are exactly the same as mine. What was vague to me is the recording said she was being moved to another division but then if she is able to pass by Wednesday, she can PIR. We live in North Carolina and had planned to drive to Great Lakes, plus we have reservations for hotel and car.  I know there is still hope but if later is going to work for her, then that's what I want.

Update. With one last try to go before being sent off to SEPS. I recieved a call today saying I PASSED my proan float.  The joy i heard in her voice was unbelievable.  Thanks again to LeAnn kept me having hope. Honestly with everyday my hope was fading.  Navy is sure to test us the family and i think i need more info so that i can remain stronger in the future.  Bless & Keep talking with each other..

My husband was in FIT for swim a month ago. He said that run is tested on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I know it's frustrating, but she could have passed today and went straight to BS21 and could call tomorrow. It is definitely stressful. I was supposed to leave Wednesday night before PIR, and I still went. Made it a trip with my mom. He ended up passing FIT the day before graduation, but needed to do BS21, so i just went home Saturday instead of Monday since I couldn't see him. I know it's ridiculous, but maybe it's supposed to work out like this? Holiday weekend is coming up & you'd be able to spend more time with her that weekend compared to this weekend. Idk, just trying to stay positive for ya. My husband said in FIT you're able to write every day, but most people don't because it's just depressing being in fit and all they wanna do is retest & pass. Hopefully she's able to call you soon. Best of luck to you!

Hi my daughter was to graduate 8/18 she failed a physical, assuming running - her least fav. I got the call last Tuesday. They gave her 2 minutes to read a scripted statement 2 times through her sobs. The only other thing she could say was she failed her physical test, then they made her hang up. Haven't heard from her since. I called legal for past 3 days after reading it's possible she'll still be graduating 8/18 but will be in stands. I got thru to a live person I legal today and they said she would call me today. She didn't. I don't know if we should get in our flight tomorrow or not? We live in CA. What do I do? Isn't there someone who can give a parent an answer? All I need is an answer to the question of do we come or not? Why won't they give us a straight answer? Is there anyone I can call to get a definitive answer by 6am PST on 8/17? Thanks!
