My son is Ship 12 Division 029 and is suppose to graduate on 12/22/10.....Is there anyone else out there that has a loved one graduating at the same time? It's going to be the best Christmas ever to be able to go witness PIR!!!
My boyfriend too! Ship 04 Div 801 I'm so excited!!! I can't wait to see him again. I've gotten 3 phone calls. He's leading his division so I know they earn those base on performance so
He pushes the guys! He will be transferred to Pensacola right after but he is taking leave time so we can spend the holidays together. He'll have to report on Jan. 04th. This is such a big thing!
Lots of missing him and not being able to talk to him everyday is the worst part. I write letters everyday!!! He asked me to and said not to stop even if it was a tint note or a picture! They die to get
the mail everyday! He said it's very cold and his last letter he said it snowed. They got their uniforms already! I'm sorry I'm just so excited I can actually share all this with someone from the same
date. I hope your son/daughter is doing great too
Hi my son is Ship o3 Div 031 can't wait. Did you get a confirmation email on travel route. We are driving & had to email map quest so far I've had to do it two times. My son called this past Sat & said they haven't received it, don't know what to do.
Why don't you send it to him on a letter? I send my boyfriend letters everyday and if you put it as PRIORITY MAIL $4.90 he'll get it the 2nd day. Enclose an envelope with one of thisPostage too and you'll receive his letter faster as well
