Welcome to the Division Discussion for divisions 159 and 160
These two divisions are brother divisions and will be training together from the beginning through BS21 their final test. Your SRs, soon to be SAILORS, are becoming friends, and some of them may be heading to A School together.
Get to know each other, your SRs are!
Please still use the Main Wall of the PIR Group to post questions, and concerns, we “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion area as often as we would like.
Every single question that is asked is important Every single concern is genuine Every single member is important to us We don't want to accidentally overlook any of them or you.
Hang in there!!!
I also received my letter today too!!! I had tears of joy while I read it! My SR wrote that I would be proud of him.....he finally learned how to iron! He said the days are getting easier because he's getting more and more use to it everyday. I'm happy to hear that. He also said that the food isn't bad but nothing beats mom's cooking, he misses that :) It was great to finally hear from him. Hope he calls again too. Glad everyone's getting their letters and calls. And if you haven't, you soon will. I'm thankful for this support group.
Me either!! I am anxious to say more Fridays done than to go-LOL. I hope my son has recieved my letters by now so he can call me this weekend-if he has our numbers...it seems like we are all adjusting since we know our kids are in great hands.
Hi! My son is Ship 13, Div 159, USS Marvin Shields. We have our reservation for Grad day at the Navy Lodge on the Naval Station at Great Lakes. I saw chatter here about two lodges with one off the base. Has anyone stayed at either, and if so, were they clean and comfortable? Has anyone been to Great Lakes and know what the weather is like end of April? I'm so excited. Only 5 more weeks.
Hi! My son is also on the USS Marvin Shields. Anyone know which airlines are good about not charging a fee to change flight reservations? First time flying out from California. We would be flying out of LAX in Los Angeles, Calif. Good to know about the weather there. We will all need to bundle up but I'm excited about seeing my SR next month! Thanks for any help. Love this site!
Southwest airlines doesn't charge for changes. You will have to pay if the fare is higher on the new flights but there is no penalty
Thank you for your help!
