Hello everyone and welcome to the Navy!!! This Group was started for the loved one of DEPPERS leaving in the month of June (although everyone is welcome).......What year you say? Well ......any year!
If you have June ship out issues/questions etc., need specific information, (or have some to share) or just want to talk to someone that is where you are, with a Recruit leaving for and arriving in BC in June, ...then this is the place to be. :-)
Remember, don't "miss 'em while you're with them!" :) Make the most of every precious moment together before they leave. This will be a big transition for both of you! We'll be here for you every step of the way...
Things to do in the last month before your future sailor leaves (Click on the link)
Once your recruit has arrived at RTC, the next stop here is to join the group Boot Camp for Moms (and loved ones) Hangout and ask questions in this group until your form letter arrives.
Approx two to three weeks after your recruit arrives you will receive the "Form Letter". The form letter will include their Ship# , DIV #, their mailing address, PIR date, and the Security Access Form. The Security Access form needs to be completed and sent back to your recruit ASAP. Keep this letter in a safe place, it has the information you will need.
The date that is on the form letter is the official date for your Recruit's Training Groups PIR (graduation), Things can always change for an individual Recruit (due to illness, injury, failure to pass a final test etc.)! So, we always recommend that you plan, if possible, to purchase Refundable or Exchangeable plane tickets.
After you have received the form letter, join the group for your recruits PIR. There you can ask questions about PIR, training, hotels etc.Those groups will be posted in the Boot Camp for Mom's group.
Thanks for joining us. We hope you will realize you are not alone, and will soon make new friends, plus feel supported and encouraged! :)

See Navy Fitness Standards"The initial run standard is evaluated on the 1.5 mile run of the first Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) at boot camp.

Hello, looking for some advice/help. My son is scheduled to leave on 6/19. He is worried because he has not heard from his recruiter/chief in a few weeks. They've had some changes and quite honestly the bi-weekly trainings and weekly check-ins have been sporadic at best. Has anyone else encountered this? And this close to leaving for BC?
Also, he is having a ton of emotions right now and I'm wondering if he's second guessing joining. He says he still wants to join, but I can tell there's some angst there. Is this normal??? Thank you!
Thanks for reaching out, Davesmom19. June sounds like it's going to be busy and emotional. Graduation from high school and joining the military are exciting milestones but it means that our babies are growing up. Congratulations on raising a future sailor. I'm so happy for these groups. I learn a lot and feel comfort knowing that I'm not the only mom feeling this way.
A'sSubMom, my son is leaving on 6/19 too! He's been in DEP since May 30th of last year, so he's been working towards this for a long time. I've been trying to prepare myself mentally as well. No matter how much time I've had to prepare, as the days are ticking down, my emotions are going crazy!
My son is graduating from HS on 6/5 and his party is on 6/8 and he leaves on 6/19. A lot happens in one month!
I've been on this site for quite a few months, but haven't really communicated with anyone too much. Been mostly learning from the veteran moms. They are a wealth of information!!!
I'm happy to finally find someone else who's son is leaving the same day as mine. I hope you're coping well and we find our sons get through BC stronger and better men!
Looks like there's a few of you now getting ready for June ship dates!
Be sure to read up on things to do in the last month:

My son leaves June 19th too. He works so he gave his 2 weeks notice yesterday so that June will be free for him to get ready and for us to have a family trip. We will be going to the Grand Canyon. He has his own apartment so we will be helping him pack up his things. Mostly, I am just trying to spend time with him as much as possible but also give him space so that he can process what's going on.
Any June 16th? My son leaves on Father’s Day...anyone else out there?
Hi! I'm still looking for any members who have DEPs leaving June 19, 2019. I'd love to hear what you are doing in these last month or so to get your recruit ready and yourself ready!
Welcome new members!
**It is very important that your future Sailor be physically fit prior to shipping to the RTC (these are new standards beginning 1/1/2018) and that he be able to pass an initial run test. See Navy Sets New Physical Fitness Standard to Start Boot Camp. "The initial run standard is evaluated on the 1.5 mile run of the first Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) at boot camp. The initial run standard for male recruits will be 16 minutes 10 seconds and 18 minutes seven seconds for female recruits."
Also, be sure to join this group for boot camp moms, here you'll find lots of valuable info.
I have been doing a lot of researching on this site and other Navy sites to help. I've also watched some of the PIRs online and that was helpful to see what the graduation will be like.
So much to learn and so much unknown!
Ha! It is confusing ....... And exhausting
You need to be a member of DEP-Leavin' for bootcamp in June to add comments!
