My son is on ship 07 div 078. I live about an hour from Great Lakes so if you have any questions about the area, hotels, airport, etc I would be happy to answer them for you. Currently Chicago is getting its first snowstorm of the season. I feel for the families trying to get into O'Hare right now for tomorrow's graduation. Chicago can get snow into April so keep this in mind when making flight arrangements for the 03/02/12 PIR. Even though I live here, I will be getting a hotel room near GL so we don't have to battle traffic in the morning. I figured I would get it for at least 2 nights so we have a place to hang out for a few hours if he gets liberty after the graduation. We wouldn't have time to drive home and get him back in time.
My sr arrived at GL Jan 4. Going into nuke. Waiting.
maybe tomorrow barb! A couple moms got theirs today! My son will be going to Groton CT for sonar tech training
yay, i can't wait to find out! im waiting for his letter... next week i hope?
yes for me! Pretty sure your boyfriend will be ship 09 and probably either division 075 or 076
Hi everyone, I just wanted to check because I am not entirely positive this is my boyfriends PIR but he left on the 5th, is this the same with everyone else?
my son left me a whole hamper full of dirty clothes, a taco bell bag in the closet along with other garbage strewn about the floor, his laptop sitting in the living room, dvd's out of their cases, his xbox at the neighbors after a party and other stuff. On top of all that my daughter was hot and heavy to move in his room so I had to work around her stuff to get his stuff packed away! I did politely thank him for giving me soooo much to do after he left in his newsletter. LOL! Any others out there busy cleaning up after their sr???
Hey! Another N4Moms veteran here, joining to help along with FTLW, Lala, and I'm sure Jessica, Betsy and Sandy will be along shortly along with some others. Please ask any questions that you may have!
Safety for your SR (future Sailor) and you!
Sailors LAST names are NOT allowed anywhere on this site. If your last name is different from your sailors it is still not recommended.
FIRST names ARE allowed but I, and some of the other “veteran” moms, will most often advise you not to use them. This is a public forum and anyone can read the posts-they do not have to be a member (if the group is set to private, the public cannot read but all N4M members can-so all you have to do is join) While they use their last names in BC (in fact they don't usually, if ever, find out each other’s first names until the end of BC), the RDC's know who they are and can then, with the right amount of info, link them up to you. So, let’s say you use your last name in your N4M name, post a picture of your SR...easy to match up...and so on.
Why does that matter? Your SR's are trying to get through BC with as little undue attention as possible. "Fly under the radar", so to speak. There have been reports from moms of their recruits being matched up with them. Some are just identified…some get IT (Intensive Training), I am guessing this depends on WHAT is posted…I know of one mom who said that her son had to do 5 push-ups just for every time she posted!
The MOST important reason for being discreet is OPSEC-Operational Security. This is a way of life for us now. It will be for your Sailors career and for some of them, even more so, depending on their individual security clearance. Some moms have mentioned that even today after years they do not know EXACTLY what their sailor does.
SPECOPS...definitely need to be VERY careful.
