DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

We are from Hacienda Heights, California my son is in ship 09 Div 58. Received 2 phones call and mail. First call he sounded stress second call sounded a lot better but he was sick. Does anyone have a child in this Div 58?

We do now. Was initially PiR 1/3 now 1/10. How is the division doing?
So happy ! I got my letter today And my phone call yesterday :)))))

Floridagirl 1972 My daughter as well is ship 09n div 057 and this saturday call was more upsetting then last. Stay strong.

great news Delfi

Thank you :) !..i am so sorry to hear about your calls being upsetting. i hope they get better as time passes. its all about getting used to the environment and the surroundings, its hard for most of them at first, but im sure she is gonna do great! just think that their are only 37 days untill you get to see her :)

My daughter is in ship 9 division 057 and finally got a phone call last Saturday (30th). Got a letter as well. Sounded down at first but I hope talking to someone helped because by the end of the conversation she sounded better.

Got another call yesterday we talked for 30 min he sounded upbeat and aske me not to cry because that made him be sad.. It was after the call that i just broke down ... This is harder than I thought and it's just so hard for me to have the person I love so far away ... He said he had revived my letters and that reading them was the best part of his day that the officers laugh at him because when he gets a letter from me he has a huge smile on his face ... It hurts me because I wish I could be there to support him and reassure him that everything is going to be ok ... I'm just having a really bad time since the call ... I'm trying to be strong for him but i miss him so much it Hurts .... I hope you all got calls too and that everything is ok with all of your loved ones !

Delfi that's good he sounds upbeat my son did also yesterday, stay strong he's almost half way there.  I got a call from my son  last night was a surprise we were at a Christmas toy drive did not expect the call at all good thing I left my phone on the table or I would have missed it. He sounded good seems like he's adjusting what a difference a week makes he seemed better than his first letter on the phone last week but this week he was even better. We talked about PIR and that we can't wait he told me that I can not forget his phone and to pleaseee bring him his boxer shorts. I had to laugh that underwear was one something he was thinking about when he has so much more on his mind. I knew this was going to be hard him leaving the nest but I never imagined would be this hard. We miss him so much.

Just got a call from my son poor thing is getting sick again and he never gets sick. I feel so bad. He sounded so good on Saturday to. Poor kid.
That's great shansdad we got the email to and booked everything I was getting bummed we weren't gonna be able to see him cause was getting so close.

Has anyone heard from their SR ship 09  div 057?
