This discussion is for those who have an SR in Ship 04, DIV 820 and 821, PIR 10/14/11. These are brother divisions and will be spending a lot of time together from what I understand. Remember OPSEC rules and for security purposes...no pictures of your SR or names of SR. God bless you all!
RTC FB says that the recruits have the opportunity to fill out a FLEET HOMETOWN NEWS form, they inturn send it to local papers with your zip code but you will need to check with your local paper to find out what their turn around time is for receiving and publishing military news announcements.
It can also depend on the paper a s to what they do with the announcements. i was diappointed that ours just had it in their on-line paper but did not put it in print.Be careful about what u put in print, like what he is doing next would be a good thing to leave out if he is going to SEAL training.
Congrats to ALL, moms and sailors! hope PIR was great!! Good luck to your Sailors!

Anne Darlene....feeling the same. Feeling really lost now! Overwhelming sadness...
I have been a faithful reader of this site since the start of boot camp for my son through PIR and now. You have all expressed my thoughts and feelings and continue to express them. I am glad the thread continues after PIR. This is only the beginning and I was a little afraid I wouldn't have any place to go to where I could see that I am not alone in wondering, waiting and learning. Thanks for being there. I will continue to read and feel comforted that I am not alone. God Bless and God Speed for all our young men as well as all of you.
