Does anyone have a recruit in Ship 04 Div 818

If so, has anyone received any letters yet?  I keep reading that it could be a full three weeks before they're allowed to write.  Also since he's in the 800th division, I understand he'll stay there for 3 more weeks after bootcamp.  If so, how does liberty work for the weekend of graduation.  Could we see him more than just the day of graduation?

Join the group, PIR 08/31/2012 TG 42 — 12 Divisions (269–278, 818 & 942), to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR. There is a Discussion within that Group for that Division. A few with recruits in that TG received letters today, so you may be getting one soon. Yes, those who are Special Warfare Operators (SO) do stay at GL for a few weeks (I've heard 4). If he is to be in another rating, it could be longer. Yes, if he stays at GL, then you will get daytime Liberty with him once he checks in at the TSC across the street on Friday and each day of the weekend from about 6:30 am until 9 pm. He will know his Liberty schedule after he calls you and you pick him up from the TSC.

lemonelephant, do all the SO's stay longer or just certain ones? Does that apply to rescue swimmers? Thanks.

I've heard that Special Warfare Operators (SO) are at GL for 4 weeks, but that could have changed.  You may want to check on Moms of Aviation Rescue Swimmers (clickable link).  I keep track of the ratings (See Ratings, A School Locations, and Links to Groups.), but since I don't have a special attachment to any of them besides MA, I rely on what websites and people tell me.
