My son arrived in Biloxi yesterday- his PIR date was 1/29.
Im not sure where to begin other than Im proud of my sailor, and want to send things to keep his spirits lifted.
Maybe we can start there and let the discussion go wherever questions arise.
God Bless- and congratulations to your sailors and families!
Howdy, My sailor graduated from A school in Biloxi Oct 2014. I posted a ton of info on the other AG site. Let me know if you have questions. I would be glad to pass on what we have learned along the way.
Alisha, my son's PIR is 2/5 so he will be there in a week. I wonder how long they will have to wait before classes begin? What time did your son fly out on Sat?
Hello everyone. How many Saliors are in one AG class? My son will graduate 2/26/16, then headed to AG school. Thank you!
I can check with my sailor. I do know it is divided into two parts. The first part is a mixed class of Air Force and Navy. The second is just Navy and is called Unique.
You bet. After I spent some time thinking about it. I think the mixed course had something under 20 and the Unique had 5, but each class could be different. There are something under 1,000 AG's in the whole Navy I think. So, the classes can't be that big.
My son text me this morning. This group will class up on February 22!
Go Team AG!!
Congratulations. I'm sure it's a relief to know when his class starts up . My son PIR date is 2/26/16. I'm sure they will fly him to Biloxi shortly after graduation. And that's all I know.
Did you take a lot of his personal things to the airport? Thank you for your help.
My sailor started AG A School in July 2014. We brought him his laptop, cell phone and some clothes to the airport to bring with him to Biloxi. We also brought a couple of pieces of jewelry that he had worn before BC. They still have to be able to carry everything by themselves. AG A School dorms are similar in size to a school dorm. The one my son was in had a living room in the middle and bedrooms on each side of it. The bedrooms were each shared with another person. Make sure you don't give him the items you bring until you meet him at the airport. They can't take them back to the base with them the night of PIR,
Congrats Alisha. The fun begins. He needs to keep his nose to the grind stone and focus on his schooling. He may end up with a smart, tough class. The sailor with the highest score at the end is supposed to get the first pick of duty stations plus a promotion.
Wow, this is an old thread, but my son will be attending AG school in Biloxi.
Currently he is at Boot Camp. Any insight as you posted this 2 years ago.
How is your son?
