it's official, got the form letter with 21 Oct PIR and Ship 11 Div 349 :) any others out there in same Div?
thanks Sheila! I heard 350 is doing good too :) Yes they will do BS together. Hopefully we will get a call this Friday!?!?!?
Hello 349ers! I apologize for being M.I.A. this whole time... Moved from Great Lakes to San Diego, signed on to my new command (PCU Michael Murphy, hooyah!) and began MORE schooling for my rate. Been so busy. Hubby has done TREMENDOUSLY in boot camp, I have had a lot of letters (some happy, some sad). He is the division's medical yeoman. He really cares for his fellow shipmates, your sons/boyfriends/husbands,etc... I got a letter a week ago- my husband had everyone write a little note to me. It was great to hear each one of their experiences and how they feel about my hubby. Which brings me to my announcement- my husband was nominated HONOR RECRUIT. He wrote in his letter that he was voted by the division, his RDCs said he won 'by a landslide'. I am SO proud of him. Not only because I went through boot and I know how tough it is, but because he is excelling and he has made in impact on the other men in his division. He has taken his leadership position seriously, and from what his shipmates have said about him, he is the definition of 'shipmate', they go to him for everything! I expected nothing less from him. Anyway, I am SO proud of division 349 for doing so well with their drills, tests, and inspections. I'm crossing my fingers that they will get Hall of Fame- but I know from personal experience that that is HARD. Let's hope they keep it together for Battle Stations. That was the ultimate challenge for my division- it's all about TEAMWORK. So when you say your prayers Thursday night, pray that our boys find strength in eachother and they stick together as a team. I can't believe these two months are finally over. I don't know which was worse- being the recruit, or being the recruit's wife! Either way, it's been tough and I am just relieved to see it coming to an end.
If anyone has any SRs attending A School in Great Lakes and you have questions, feel free to contact me. I was in Great Lakes for 6 months after I graduated boot. Or if anyone has any questions in general that you think I could help you with, don't be shy!
Hooyah 349 <3
