Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

Anyone has a SR in SHIP 14 DIV 061, who left for boot camp on Nov. 17, 2014? Got the "call" & "box" already but no Form Letter yet. I'm so proud of my sailor and can't wait to hug him & hang out together on PIR weekend in Jan. 2015!

Hi!

Welcome to Navy for Moms!!

My Sailor Daughter's PIR was March 2013--can't believe how fast time has flown!.  She is an IT3 (Information Systems Technician, Petty Officer Third Class). I primarily provide scriptural encouragement for the PIR groups, Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and a few of the other groups that I am a member of.  I'll also help out with anything that I am familiar with--all kinds of tidbits I learned during my daughter's Boot Camp experience~~  This site really made the time go much faster.  I'm so thankful that my Sailor daughter sent me the link for this awesome group of friends when she enlisted!!  Count 9 Fridays and before you know it, you'll be seeing your baby again at PIR!!  Here we go!!!

Comment by Future Sailor's Wife on November 27, 2014 at 12:35am
I'm also happy to see this group here. I will be making the trip by car. 6 hour drive. So proud of my boyfriend.

Hello! Welcome to your PIR Group!

You can call me FTLW, it's easier :-)

My Sailor PIR’d in 05/2011. He is a Seabee Reservist. I have been an AF (Security Forces) Reservist wife for 28 years…I know …not Navy…but I am familiar with military life! We have been through two Deployments. Now working on Retirement process from AF and soon from Civilian job. Our son enlisted while Hubby was in Iraq. This site was a Godsend and helped me get through not only our sons BC experience but my husbands and my separation for 6 months.

I am a “veteran” mom and volunteer on the PIR groups mostly.

Hi!!

Welcome to your PIR group!

My son graduated BC in April of 2012. He is an  ET, stayed in GL for A School, went to C School in San Diego, and is forward-deployed.  The ship he is attached to is a Whidbey Island-class landing ship, part of the Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), Squadron 11.

A few other veteran moms will be joining to help answer questions, offer support, and give you lots of information.

There will also be lots of pages posted with information for you along the way. They will be posted as the subjects come up!

Remember there are no dumb questions, so ask away!

Fasten your seatbelts...the next few weeks will be a roller coaster ride, but at the end of the ride you are in for the best hug ever!!
