Thank you. I appreciate the info. I wish we could know some of the information sooner. For instance, since your SR will be attending A school here, then they will leave from X airport.
My son was able to tell me some info when he made his "im a sailor" call. Highly recommend the index card in advance that Phoenixmom recommends. We sent it 2 weeks prior and he had it all filled out at PIR for us, one less thing to remember, its a busy morning for new sailors...my son forgot to put on deodorant! Ha ha
HAHAHA. I get it - I can't say I haven't forgotten that or mascara on mornings where I'm rushed. I have written out the index card for him and will send it with my next non-Sandboxx letter.
Your SR will get his A School orders sometime in the last week to the day of PIR. No way to know before those orders are received. I can tell you most Sailors do fly out on Saturday.
