So happy, we received the form letter today!!! Now I can mail my sons Birthday card and all the letters we’ve written!!! He was able to write a quick note on the back of the form letter!! Feeling happy that he is where he wants to be, working towards his future!!
Hello All! New to this blog! Son is in VA for his A School. So happy that he has his phone so I can send him text saying hi or that I love him. LOL! So nice to get those phone calls from him when he has a few minutes to chat! I'm really hoping when he's done with w A school that he'll be able to come home before reporting in April 1st at his home base. Fingers crossed!
Have a super day and I'm thankful to be part of this group :)

Picked up the mail today and today I received the form letter! Think her box came in today too. Now I can breathe a little easier. I know she still has a ways to go, but being able to write her makes it all a little easier. Knowing she made the first run is a weight off me. So now I can start looking at planning the trip for PIR. As soon as I get the form letter filled out.

I am thankful for finding this website. Our only child, my son started his boot camp on 1/29 and today marks 2 weeks. It has been a long two weeks and I have not received any communication yet. I am hoping this week we will get a letter. Is there a specific day they are allowed to make their calls. I got the call when he arrived and received his box of personal items but nothing more. Thanks
So she is back at boot camp! She arrived on Friday (weather held them up). So just waiting patiently to not hear anything until we get the form letter. Hoping all goes well for her this time. I think she will be a little more confident this time. She has already been through that first week once, she KNOWS she can do the run with time to spare. Her confidence should be better this time around at least. So now I will wait......
My Husband left 1/8/19 and after a long 2 1/2 weeks my husband finally got to call home, and I even got my first letter today!! This is the hardest thing I've had to experience, being 8 months pregnant, living on my own for the first time and not having any contact with my husband, but the 10 minutes we got to talk made up for it all! He is doing so good, which is such a relief, he is even in charge of 10 guys in his division! He said getting mail is the best part of the day, but that they…Continue
If I understand it correctly, HOLD days are Saturday and Sunday....how does that impact the baseline PFA? Do those two days count as the five days from arrival or not? My son left Tuesday, arrived Wednesday early morning, so does he do his baseline PFA on Sunday or Tuesday? I'm just trying to figure out when I can expect to hear from my baby.
Our daughter left over 3 weeks ago (1/2/19) . We have not received a phone call (except the night she got in and all we heard was HELLO and the call disconnected) , the form letter, or any letters. I read the FORM letter information and now am wondering if she's not passing the run. Is this common? The recruiter said she can't access her info in the system. Now I realize they can't give us the info. How much longer could it take?
My husband arrived at boot camp on 1-8-19. We are expecting our first child 3-16-19, a sweet little girl we plan on naming Emmalynn. Since he left I received his box of clothes but nothing else, no letter, I don't even have his address so I can't send letters. I wish I knew how he was doing, it is so hard!! How do you moms/spouses do it? I found this site in hopes of not feeling so alone in this new lifestyle!
My son's PIR was pushed back to March 01, 2019. He gave me his division # and PIR date, however I did not get his Ship#, in order to get proper address. Will that be provided in the form letter and how long before I receive that letter. I spoke to my son on January 03, 2019. Any info would greatly be appreciated! Thanks
My youngest son arrived at boot camp on Dec. 13 I thought it would be easier for me since I already have a son in the Navy, but it is still hard going through this process.
Hi there! Merry Christmas to everyone!
My son entered Boot Camp on November 22. He is in division 083. I had hoped for a call at Christmas, but alas, did not get one. It's not like it was promised or anything, I just miss him and had hoped for one.
So, what did they do on Christmas at Boot Camp? I can't seem to find much. I don't think he is far enough along to be part of the Adopt-A-Sailor group. Did they have a full/regular day? Did he get or do anything special? …Continue
So my daughter started camp in Oct and was just pushed to the FIT division as she hurt her knee on her final PT run and was not able to finish..Has anyone been through this. She did call to let me know she would not graduate this week and that the x-rays would come back today..
I am not sure if or who I can reach to find out what the results are and when she will be able to retest. They only allowed her less than 5 mins to call and of course was in tears the whole…Continue
