Please share when you recieved your "I'm a Sailor" call.
I saw one Mom was called just 2 days before PIR. Is that usual?
proudascanbe--That is normal, my son called 2 days before PIR also it depends on when they do the final test called Battlestations. Hope this helps you. We left a day early to take in some sights the day before his graduation so when we got the "I'm a Sailor" we were on the road to GL.
Thank you. I will be taking the train to Chicago...so I might be traveling when he tries to call me. Is there any way to find out when BS21 will be for "your" DIV?
Has anyone from 03/319 recieved there "I'm a Sailor" phone call. I know no news is good news from what I'm told. But am getting a little nervous. Will be driving from NE tomorrow.
we received our call on a Thursday before PIR but our grandson was in one of the earliest divisions-they usally go in order and have a sister/brother division that do Battle Stations on the same night-things happen and things dont always go as planned-I know they dont do Battle Stations on Friday because they have their competion between all the divisons then. But, with the Navy that could happen, I suppose
I got my call the day before PIR at 4:15pm sitting in my hotel room in Waukegan LOL talk about cutting it close but oh well I still got it :-) after 4mths I was tired of waiting LOL my son was injured and delayed but on to A school now.
