My son will graduate boot camp on Nov. 1, then off to BESS!!!
Hello, tazangel! Good to “meet” you! All best wishes to your son as he makes the journey through GL, and then on to Groton.
Hey y’all...my son just left for BC on Tuesday and after PIR he’ll be going to Groton. Thought I’d stop in to say hi...
Cindy, feel free to ask me anything. I'm no expert, but my son has been in Groton for BESS, A-school, and now C-school so I may have answers to other questions that come up based on my experiences.
If you do travel to Groton for BESS graduation, there's a pretty nice Navy Lodge just 5 minutes from the base, and I believe your son can get you a room there. Rates are reasonable ($79/night last time I checked) and they don't charge any sales or room taxes, either. Flying into Providence, RI is closest (45 minutes from Groton), but you can also fly into Hartford, CT (about an hour from Groton).
Thank you sunflowerLynn! I feel a little lost since he arrived at Groton . We had so much information about boot camp and then almost nothing. We would be traveling from AZ, I’m going to look in to our options. ❤️
Cindy, I certainly did! And yes, there were family members present for the BESS graduation. It obviously isn't as elaborate as PIR, but I thought it was a really nice ceremony.
Do families attend the graduation from BESS? You
Something is fishy. Sub School isn't like boot camp, they have regular hours and they all have phones and internet when not in class. Hate to say it, but I suspect the GF isn't telling you something. Your options for official channels are limited and they may or may not be permitted to tell you anything. You might try the Chaplain at the Naval Submarine School. I've never actually talked to a Chaplain, but I would think they would at least be sympathetic, and can maintain confidentiality in both directions.
