Proud mother of Naval RecruitBulls Unit. The receuiter has been so supportive. My son was one of 9 from school who enlisted. Great group of parents that i have had the opportunity to also get support from. Proud of my son!
Kris: I was able to attend. I live about a hour south of The United Center. I wouldn't tell him you can't make it until we are real close to that date. Are you on Facebook? I am thinking of trying the Live Stream so my sisters can see the ceremony. Does anyone know if that is allowed? My son is James. I wonder if they know each other? If you want to send me a friend request, message me here. I have some pictures from the wearing in and maybe you can catch see him.
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. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend.
