Hello! My youngest son leaves tomorrow for BC. I'm just browsing around the site and see that your son has his glasses on at PIR! Did you send them to him while he was in Boot Camp? I think this is the worst thing my son is worried about with regard to Boot Camp - are those BC glasses! LOL! So, how did he manage to get them to wear? Thanks!

Hey Jennifer, it was so nice visiting with you at the hotel!! Have you heard from Justin? We finally got a call from Jacob on Sunday and it was sooooo good!! Already planning a trip to Pensacola. I am learning alot about patience and letting go through this whole experience and really appreciated our talk - I feel like I am not the only one walking the challenge.

I'd really like to get together for lunch sometime! We could meet in the middle. Oh, did you still have the info on the Div Shirts?

Have a wonderful week!!

Hi Jennifer! How did it go?

Jennifer, Has Justin gone through Battle Stations yet? It looks like the last four groups are going tonight. I was really hoping that Bill went last night but it doesn't look like it.

Hi Jennifer
thanks for writing me back. Last night was quite difficult. I saw in another spot on this site that DIV 120 probably was doing BS last night, so hopefully I will get a call with good news sometime today! In the meantime I will keep breathing! Are you going to the meet and greet? Hopefully we can meet up there.
Congratulations on being the proud mom of a new sailor!

Every link I try comes back an error. Where exactly in pyzam do you get the link?

Hi Jennifer
I am also Jennifer, mom of Jon of Div 120 who should also PIR this Friday, the 13th. I'm writing because my son is likely doing BS yesterday or today too..I don't know for sure because I haven't heard from him--phone call or letter--for over two weeks. To that point I had a letter a week and an occasional phone call. I'm worried because he was really sick the last time I heard from him. It sounds like you've had some things to deal with as Justin progressed...any advice? I am all set to fly from CT to O'Hare on Thursday to attend the PIR but I have this sinking feeling that something is wrong. During this past week his recruiter called to check in to see how Jon was doing--the only call I've gotten from him during the 8 weeks. I called back but we have yet to talk.

Do you think that things have just been so intense the past few weeks that there hasn't been time/energy to write? Of course, I guess writing letters and phone calls are privleges, so maybe that is the issue. Though up to the point of our last phone call his division was scoring top overall with inspections and such.

sorry for the rambling email...I am just a *bit* worried I guess. Hopefully I'll find out that everything is A-OK on Friday. Any advice regarding how to 'keep my cool' would be appreciated!

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the info. I have been trying that, but it doesn't seem to be working right or I am doing something wrong.

My son, Andrew, will PIR next Friday 3/20/09. He is Div 131 - Ship 07.

Again, thanks for the info and I will try again.

Hi Jennifer, any word from Justin yet?
At 3:02pm on March 8, 2009, Carol Aileen said…
Hi Jennifer! I hope you hear something soon! we are traveling and I don't think i will have a internet access for the next 4 days.... we are visiting family at the moment, and will be heading to D.C. for a few days tomorrow then heading home. I will be thinking of you and Justin - hope all goes well. We had a rough trip to Chicago - but it was all worth it. We didn't hear if he passed Battlestations until we were almost there. and Yes we were very proud of Aaron! he did great.

Hi Jennifer - I 've been thinking about you! sounds like some stuff is going on with Justin, I know that they will do everything they can to help him pass - I know that there were several recruits last PIR that had troubles with injurys and running - they made it. I'll be thinking of you!

Hey lady...any news? Let us know as soon as you hear anything!
I thought you could use a laugh so....I was working in the yard today and stepped in a hole and fell. Landed right in some pretty fresh dog crap. It was on my leg, on my arm! OMG it was nasty. Ankle is ok....just sprained!

I wish your son Justin the very best of luck when he gets his second chance.
These recruits have persevered through so much intense training that I just feel for these kids. They have endured so much and deserve to succeed in their endeavor. Hang in there!

Hi Jennifer. What happened to Justin?? Josh is doing okay. I talked to him a few days ago. He has a really good attitude about the whole thing. Right now he is working in the office. He seems to like it but is bored and very anxious to move on...He got his cast off last Friday so now he is in Physical Therapy. My calculations he will graduate in Late April! I hope so anyway. He is on Ship 6. Thanks for writing to me! I haven't been on in a while. We have had so much going on!! Keep Josh in your prayers. I will do the same for Justin. Tomorrow is Josh's 22nd birthday.....

Thanks for writing back. i will take your lead on this. I think you know a lot more of these ladies than I do.

Hi Jennifer,

I am reaching out to you because you are the person that started the PIR 03/13 blog. My son John will be graduating on 03/13. For the first 5 weeks that he was in BC I used a post that I created to communicate with other Moms whose children shared the same Ship/Div. But after the 5th week, no one was really responding. Then around week 6-7, my sons girlfriend told me about your blog. I was so exicted! I went there and posted. But, I was quickly turned off because the talk was too reglious for me. From that point forward I have tried to post and feel like I fit in, but it has been difficult for me. I read about the meet and greet, but wouldnt sign up because I thought it was going to be like a religious gathering. Is that the case? Or are you planning the event? Sorry to sound whiny. I am just disappointed. My inital experience with the site was amazing but now I feel like I am on the outside.

Jennifer, I completely understand. Glad we can put this behind us and celebrate our sons. What an exciting time for all of us. Janie

Jennifer, Just wanted to take a moment and express my feelings about yesterday and the comment made about religion. I am so sorry if my faith offended you on the group which you initially created. I Had no intention of that ever happening. My relationship with Christ is just "who I am" and cannot be separated from my being. On the other hand, I completely understand your feelings and would like to ask simply for your forgiveness for offending you and the others. I will keep checking in with you wonderful moms and family and still hope to have the privilege of meeting you next weekend. Your friend and fellow Navy Mom, Janie
