Anyone with division 081? Okay, I took a chance and booked flights before I got my letter, $117 Boston to Chicago roundtrip. Finalizing staying at Keylime Cove $113/night. We will have both the PIR and a birthday to celebrate that weekend!
My bf is is the same ship and division as well!
No personal letter yet. I'm hoping for tomorrow!
My boyfriend is the same ship and division too! I am hoping that I get a letter tomorrow as well. From what I heard, though, people are just getting letters who have people in PIR 3/2. So I am hoping by at least next week. I just hope he has gotten my letters. I have sent about 12 or 13.
I sent out 24 envelopes on Monday, after finally getting his address. I know 5 others went out from my mother, brother, etc. and his girlfriend sent about 12. I hope the mail helps him, he sounded pretty down in the few lines on the back of the form letter. I am still hoping for this week for my first letter! I know they probably won't get mail until the end of next week, it takes 3 weeks to train the SR for mail distribution, and P days don't count :(
I haven't even gotten to see the form letter. I don't have the best relationship with my bf's parents. They haven't let me know anything. But I really hope I get a letter this week. It would really help.
I have been waiting all morning for the mail and as soon as I saw them I ran outside in the pouring rain. I did all this just to realize there wasn't anything from my boyfriend. I literally stood in the pouring rain looking at every envelope and crying when there wasn't one from him. I was really hoping for one today :(
No Letter :(
My daughter is on that ship as well. I can't wait until the letter comes either.
Are any of you planning on going to either of the meet & greets? We booked our hotel the other day - staying at the Days Inn right across from the base. We are driving in during the day on Thursday the 8th (we are from Michigan)
I don't even know if my boyfriend wrote my name down. I just hope I find out soon so I can ask off of work, tell my professors I won't be in class, and have my family book a hotel. I really hope I can go to the graduation.
How did you get your boyfriend's PIR date, and his ship/div? The form letter lists the 4 people the recruit has listed for graduation guests.
I have never even seen the form letter. I got his his ship and division from his recruiter and everyone else that has the same ship and division has the 3/9 PIR date so I just assumed. His parents and I never really got to know each other so they don't talk to me or tell me anything. His dad and brother shouldn't count for his graduation list, though, because his dad has a military ID and his brother is under the age of 12. I am not sure if he knew that or not. I read somewhere that the list given on the form letter are just the intended guests and they make a final list closer to the PIR date. So hopefully he puts my name down for the official one.
