I've let ellen and FTLW know that you have received the form letter. Watch in Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and the group will be posted once it is formed. Join that group while you are there. There will be a lot of information and support for you there as well as in the PIR group once it is created (hopefully later today).
You are very welcome.
Join the group, PIR 05/24/2013 TG 28 (clickable link), to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR. Know that Divisions 195 and 196 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 together, so look for others with loved ones in either division. There will later be a discussion within that group for the two divisions.
Just got he letter. My son left the 26th as well and is the same ship and division.
You may also want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones), PIR Reference Information, and New Members Stop Here. There will be a lot of great information and support for you in those groups as well as in the PIR group. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) and Discussions within the groups.
