My son is in basic training in Great Lakes. He called me yesterday and told me he switched shifts he gave me the ship named I was able to find out the ship number through the website. However he did not give me a new division number so I've been sending letters leaving that blank. Do you think his division number changed since his ship changed and if not will he still get my letters even though I don't have a new division number.

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas.
Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.
This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you. We look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.
Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
