I received paperwork from my son to fill out in order to participate in adopting my sailor. I will get to pick him up at 8 am Christmas morning and return him at 8 pm. His PIR group is 01/07/11. I am so excited and cannot wait to see him. It is only one day, but I will treasure that one day with him.Some of your recruits may also qualify for this program. If they are not adopted out - I think most of them get invited by local church groups, VFW, other organazations, and even individual families that open up their home to allow recruits to have a home like Christmas. You are allowed to get your recruit plus one other.
