My son leaves on Jan 9. I am so excited but have a lot of concerns at the same time. Any tips any mom that has been through this can tell me would be greatly appreciated. So glad to find this website. Thank you.
Divisions 113and114are brother divisions and train together and will haveBattle Stations-21 (BST)together, so look for others with loved ones in either division. Write to your recruit and ask whenBattle Stations-21 (BST)will be so you will know when to expect the "I'm a Sailor!" call.
Your Sailor will most likely fly out to "A" School the day after PIR, but may fly out on Sunday due to flight availability issues. Plan to leave on Sunday if you are able. SeePIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekendto help you know how to plan your weekend.
AT’s will be assigned to Aviation Electronics Technician-Organizational (AT-O) or Aviation Electronics Technician-Intermediate (AT-I). The assignment to AE or AT may be made prior to shipping to the RTC for some. For those with an AT contract prior to BC, the assignment to AT-O or AT-I is made soon after arriving at Pensacola. There is more info on AT-O and AT-I inhttp://www.navydep.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398.
There are 4 days of P-days, but he will also have P-HOLD days this weekend and may have additional HOLD days if the division did not fill today. SeeArrivaland What Happens at the RTC.
By counting 9 Fridays, PIR will most likely be 03/09/2018 for those who shipped on 01/09/2018. It could be 03/02/2018 for some if they are in a Push Division and were placed in one of the last divisions from last week. It is possible for some who arrive on the same date to have PIR a week apart. Wait on The Form Letter to know the PIR date for sure.
