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!!!
My husband and I are planning to go to the meet and greet. Printed our gate pass, packed and rechecked trying to making sure I don't forget anything, Looking at the countdown clock 9 days, Wow... I miss my SR he tells me great things are happening when I receive his letters. He is in my thoughts all the time, BS is soon so anticipating that phone call and praying they all do well.
We received a letter from our son today. He and some others in Ship 09 Div 160 had been working on pushups, etc. together. Sounds good! He was looking forward to PFA (should have already happened) and Battle Stations. He's pumped. I'm sure yours is, too. Just think, in a week we will be in Chicago going beddy-bye to get ready for PIR on Friday!
Mine is going to Charleston, SC, to Nuke school. How about yours?
Congratulations!!!! We got our call also. Happy Day!!!
Scout92, Your sailor will leave the RTC sometime in the wee hours of Saturday morning, and bused to the airport. On Sat. you can go to the airport and wait with him at the gate until he leaves, don't try and leave too early on Sat as you may have several hours together at the airport.
Just came by to see if anyone has checked in. It has been a week since PIR. and what a week. We made it to PIR and it was a great experience, all sort of feelings. Pride, joy, exhaustion, and overwhelming of all that was in traveling and getting there, sadness of leaving him again. My sailor is in Pensacola waiting for class to start. We talk daily which is such a difference from Boot Camp I also know that will change when he gets his duty station but for now I am enjoying it. I hope all is well with your sailors and you.
One year ago many of us were together at our Sailor's Boot camp graduation. The year has move us all into different areas, but you all are in my thoughts and prayers daily.
