This Discussion is for loved ones of Recruits in Divisions 337 and 338. These are Brother Divisions and your Recruits will be training together, so perhaps you would like to get to know each other on here.
Even with all that my son's letter last week to his sister was very up beat. I have also been trying to win one of the contest on facebook to see a picture but have had no luck. I believe my internet is just way to slow at work. I'm hopeful that my daughter will have better luck on campus. But it is getting real close now and it won't be to long before we get to see them in person.
There is a facebook page, NavyTrainingCommand. On the side where facebook list Wall, Discussions and etc there is Notes, the contest are listed there with the rules and all. Alot of people have set up discussion groups for their Divisions. My daughter set one up for 337. On the wall people ask questions and someone from RTC tries to get them answered. The problem is people take up alot of space writing stuff to their SR that the recruits will never see until they are out of BC.
Everyone in Div 338 go to Recruit Training Command on facebook and do Wacky Wednesday. If we win we can see a picture of Div 338!! They show you a picture and first person to guess what it is gets a picture. Its at noon central time.
Did you go find the Recruit Training Command on facebook? Go to their page and on the left under Notes there are the rules to play Wacky Wednesday. They will post a messed up picture of Recruits performing a task at 12:00PM CT. The first person to answer correctly will get to pick a Div.
