Welcome!!! I'm so glad to have found someone on the same ship in the same division.
My son's a nuke, how about yours?
I'm a newbee too!
Mine's a nuke also. Headed to Goose Creek after BC.
Anyone else have a loved one in this ship/division?
It looks like we're still the only ones ... maybe more will join us soon.
Are you making plans for PIR yet? Do you know who's going and where you'll be staying?
I'm just starting to think about it.
I saw another Ship 12, but it was Div 212. I haven't even seen others in the Div. I don't get how this is organized yet.
Keep in touch. Have a great week.
I consider myself very lucky that I live within an hours drive from GL, so I don't have to travel or stay at a hotel. So my planning involves what time we will get up that morning and leave the house. What about you?
I haven't seen others from the same Ship and Division either. I think lots of people are still trying to figure it all out.
Take care and keep thinking happy thoughts! Today is one day closer to PIR!
We live in Minnesota. I'm guessing it's about a 7 hour drive. I'm planning to come sometime on Thursday. I'll be travelling with my ex and possibly my son's fiance. We're not sure where we want to stay yet. Do you have recommendations?
Sounds a little awkward, to say the least. But I'm sure you all have your son's best interests at heart and will do whatever it takes to make sure it is a great day for him. All of the love I see in the messages that are being posted makes me realize these young men have such great support from those that care about them. Everyone is hoping and praying for them to be successful at what they have chosen to do.
Hopefully your arrangements will work out well.
Hello MNSunshine. Thank you for starting this discussion group. I don't feel like I am alone with this process. It's nice to be able to share with other parents.
Do you have a son or daughter or spouse at Great Lakes?
Where are they headed after basic?
Are you planning to go to PIR?
Where are you from?
Can't wait to get to know you!
