DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

My son is Ship 12/Div 285.  So happy to get to know you all.  Anyone else have a sailor that needed wisdom teeth out?  Has anyone received a personal letter from their sailor yet?

We also have a big family and were told that there might be a way to get every one of his siblings to PIR, but not sure how.  Anyone been through this?

We recived our first personal letter from our son Thursday (July 26th).  He also has to have his wisdom teeth out. He is Ship12/Div.286.

Yes, my son had his wisdom pulled the first week he was there. I received a letter from him on last week said he was running out of stamps and envelops and will write when he get some more this past Monday. So I hope there's a letter in the mailbox when I get home. I hope to meet all of you when we arrive 09/07/2012...enjoy

  My son is Ship 12, Div 285!  He will be going to to A School in Great Lakes.  Definitely going to PIR and have booked two rooms at The Navy Lodge.  I am so excited!

Your son is with mine.  We will also be at PIR.  Have you heard from him, other than the box and form letter?

No, not yet.  Hopefully soon though.  Have you?  I read somewhere it would probably be during week 3 that we get one. Do you know if they'll have liberty on Sunday too if A School is @ Great Lakes?  I'm trying to decide about travel dates.
