My daughter left this evening and now I am awaiting her arrival call. I am so happy for her, proud of her, and scared for her. She's a lil bit of a thing but I know she can do it. I don't like waiting much so this will definitely be a learning experience for me. Hopefully I will get the letter that gives me her mailing address and what ship and division she will be in by the end of the week.
Oh I'm so sorry... I pray all is well with him and that you will receive something soon.
My son just left on Dec. 4th. I had a really hard time letting go! But it's getting better everyday. I was so excited to get the formatted letter with his address, but it also made me realize that this is really happening. I got the letter after about 5 days. He is there and it kills me that I can't talk to him at the end of the day or week even to see how he's doing. Can't wait to get that first real letter from him. Hang in there!
I feel the same way. I'm so use to seeing my daughter everyday and talking or texting to her every day... I mailed out 6 letters earlier today. I know she is going to be like " Momma, you didn't miss any second of any day" lol...
For those w their form letters already and have NOT joined your PIR group, you should do so asap - you'll find others in the same boat and will forms some great bonds. Good luck to all.

I tried to find my PIR group (2-13-13)on here but I couldn't. So if you could point me in the right direction, that would be great... :-)
Have you received a form letter? 02/13/2013 is a Wednesday and there is no federal holiday that would cause PIR to be on a Wednesday that week, so your SR would either have PIR on 02/08/2013 or 02/15/2013. I see that she is in Division 090, so that means her PIR is 02/08/2013. The group for that date has just bee created so go to http://www.navyformoms.com/group/pir02082013 and join. Divisions 089 and 090 are brother divisions and train together, so look for others with loved ones in either division.
Yes, I received her letter (form) and she has written, "08 FEB 13. Oh wow, the light just went on... I saw it as Feb 13, 2013 and not Feb 8, 2013. I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad you found my error. I had mapped our route there and everything... Can't wait for my husband to get home so I can show him my blunder... LLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLL!!!!!
I forgot to ask, how many guests did she include on the form letter, 3 or 4? Thanks.
Ok, I was sooo wrong... Her PIR is 2-08-13. She wrote it as "08 FEB 13" Why I saw Feb 13, 2012 is beyond me... Too funny... Thanks to lemonelephant for catching my error...
You are so welcome. We have each others' backs.
