My son left 2 weeks ago as of this Wednesday. Miss him terribly!
That is not a dumb question at all. Each Training Group (TG) has a performing division. TG 12's performing division is Division 912. (Every now and then a TG will have more than one 900 division because of skipped weeks when there is no PIR.) A TG is the group of recruits who train together and have PIR on the same date.
So he is likely playing in the band/
HMMM, he hasnt done marching band since 10th grade... ;0)
There are a lot of positions in a 900 division, but if he has band experience, he MAY be doing that. You will just have to find out. It is an honor to be in a 900 Division.
wow... GREAT! So excited! Think it will be a surprise?
You can ask him in a letter what he will be doing. Also, be sure to ask him when he will perform first so you can check the photos on the RTC fB page (clickable link) to see if you can spot him. It is easier to try to sopt him if you know what he is doing--playing an instrument, carrying a state flag..... They usually perform in the 2 PIR's prior to their own.
Got a letter yesterday!
Question: He wants regular size envelopes so he doesn't have to use the small GL envelopes. Can I send them in a slightly larger than normal envelope or are standard size only acceptable?
My son wrote that some SR's have been receiving cookies. The RDC's confiscate them and place them on a desk behind the glass wall in full view. As the SR's have to march by the office, the RDC's in the office start eating away.
Actually, One of my sis in law's mailed cookies, Guess we didn't make it clear enough!
After being screamed at, my son was able to share cookies with his division because their 1st test scores were so fabulous!
