We made our return flight for Sunday, but thats just because we are going to spend the weekend in Chicago. I think we will only get to see our son on graduation day as I have heard he might be flying out that night or the next day. Who knows.

Divisions 175 and 176 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 (BST) together, so look for others with loved ones in either division.
Since your recruit is in one of the last two regular divisions in the TG, you can expect the "I'm a Sailor!" call only a day or so before PIR (probably Wednesday). Write to your recruit and ask when Battle Stations-21 (BST) will be so you will know when to expect that call.
