Finally received letter today, looking for anyone else in the same ship and div
Happy Happy to receive letter
my son is in div 028 ship 03... he keeps telling me to check the facebook page, but I cannot find it... do you have the link?
My Son is also in Division 028, ship 03. There is a facebook page: U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command... it has lots of great information. Press "forum" and you can see the picture that was taken of Division 028 for somebody winning the contest of guessing a scrambled picture correctly.
The picture was a great surprise. I wish they would start the contest again. It is on hiatus till after the holiday. My son is on the front row, 2nd from the left!
My son, Zachary, is in this Division as well. He is the guy that yells Tattoo-Tattoo every night. Well at least I think every night! We are from the Eastern shore of MD.
Hi Everyone! My son is 03/028! Would love to meet more moms!! Roland Seth Barnes- headed to Texas after PIR for A School!!
Just a heads up on the ribbons some of you guys have been ordering to wear to PIR. All the ribbons that I have received payments for were shipped today. Please let me know what you think of them when they arrive. I know you will all wear them with pride when you see your Sailors. If anyone else would like more info on ordering the ribbons just send me a friend request on this site or an email to email@example.com Thanks so much :-)
ack! I feel so behind! I don't have a ribbon.. didn't know about them.. where can I find them and how much and could it be delivered before the 27th? There's a place to buy sweat shirts? Is everyone dressing up or going casual for the big event?
Dear families of Ship 03 Div 028. I am begging for some help please. My husband and I will not be able to attend my son's graduation on December 29th. My husband's Dad passed away on December 15th with the funeral on December 21st. We live in Vancouver, Washington State (just across from Portland, Oregon)
and we have taken lots of time off from work to be down in Fairfield, California helping his Mom with the medical transitions before the death and after. By the time the air cleared and we looked into flights from Portland OR, to Chicago it was going to be $800.00 plus each, not including hotel room and rental car. My son has called and asked us not to come. He said we would not be able to see him before the graduation and that we might be able to see him all but 1 hour after because he will have to get back and get his gear, check out, and catch the shuttle to Ohare for his flight home that same afternoon. He does not want to stay in Chicago to play tourist. He wants to come home for 5 days. I have received his flight itinerary, and his plane departs Chicago at 5:00p.m. on the 29th to arrive home in Portland at 8:30 p.m. If my Husband and I were to even go, we would be there less than 36 hours. We do not have the extra time or finances for such a short trip..We would have liked to see the sites of Chicago at least, but would rather be at home preparing for our son's homecoming. THIS IS OUR BEGGING REQUEST PLEASE: PICTURES OF THIS DIVISION AT GRADUATION!!..he told us that he will be holding one of the flags. Not sure how many flags there will be, it looks like maybe 5 to 6 in front of each row in the division? Kellen is half Filipino and half English. (Filipinish!!) so his coloring is more on the darker side. No glassed and jet black hair. Anybody taking pictures, would you please keep us in mind and share what you have taken, and if by chance you pick him out, could you snap a picture of him. It will be greatly appreciated and no amount of "THANKS" will be enough. We have 30+ friends and family that will be at the Portland airport to share in his homecoming. my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org...would love to somehow get copies of any pictures..via e-mail or postal system...please contact me, something can be hopefully workd out. Thank you, Pete and Sandy Anderson
