"Yep. We were the same. Our SR's last letter (last Wed) said we would get a call on Sunday, April 16 but it was crickets at our house. Ship 02 Div 925. We don't know what happened, so hope to get another letter soon with an explanation!…"
"I am very excited to have seen my SR carrying the Arkansas flag at last Friday's PIR! It was so good to catch even just a glimpse of her! We thought we were going to get a phone call yesterday, but nothing. Does anyone know when "Battle…"
"Good Friday morning everyone! Fellow Unit 925 moms - I'm going to watch today's PIR in hopes of seeing my SR carrying the Arkansas Flag! Give it a shot - you might see YOURS! Only 16 more days until it's their very own…"
"I'm really excited. I'll be at work, but all of my work comrades are cheering me on. I'll be streaming it live on one of my computer monitors. I watched the April 7 PIR and discovered what the "sticks" drill looks like and…"
"Hi all! I've been on one deadline after another at work and unable to join in the conversation here. I'm getting SO excited about PIR coming up in two and a half short weeks!! I think I read somewhere awhile back that our 925'ers will…"

"I am feeling frustrated. My SR has been in BC for four full weeks now. We have had one four-minute phone call and two letters. When she called last week, she had no voice - sick, and was not a happy camper. She is in Unit 925 which someone said is…"
"Good morning, all. I do love this group! We got our four minute phone call last Sunday (wrote earlier about her being upset and crying, which is really hard). She is older.....34, so has been assigned a bunch of responsibilities that whe worries…"
I am a 68 year old mom of two adult kids. My daughter joined the Navy at age 33! Her dad and I are excited about kicking off this new career with her. Her brother was in the US Marine Corps and now works in the private sector. My husband and I continue to work full time. I am a photographer, a gardener and a knitter.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
At Boot Camp now
When I heard “Navy,” I...
was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
provide a wide variety of opportunities, careers and security.
Our Navy experience so far...
has been positive and maturing.

Hi. I just wanted you to know that I was in the same situation as you are. My daughters letter didn't arrive for many days after. I got the box... but the letter was delayed for some reason. I promise, it will come and you will feel so much better. Then, you will live for the next letter. Then, the first call will come from Waukegan, IL and your heart will stop. My daughter graduates next week. I am a veteran...and I know what she is going through, so that makes it hard and easy, at times. But, when you get the letter, you will have an outlet (address) to write letters now. That will make you feel better. The letters are few and far between at first, but they will get Sundays off from 0700-1300 for personal time and letters typically arrive around Thursday or Friday. Then more calls if they get rewarded. Keep the faith...there is a process and in 8 weeks, it will be over!
