Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 309 and 310
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!!!

Please verify with your recruit that a DVD has not been ordered by them prior to placing your request.

Hi there!!! If there is anyone here or that you all know who will be unable to attend the PIR please share, If there is a way or something we can pull together and help out with let me/us know such as pass along something to their SR, give a hug to them, shake their hand, take them to lunch, dinner; there was one Mom on here who sent another Mom the SRs cellphone to take to A school along with other items, because Mom was unable to attend. I'm putting it out there :) 14/310
Good morning ladies, No phone calls lately, how's everyone holding up ? I definitely need to find a hobby or something to keep me busy. It was just my son and myself at home and we did a lot together so is really quiet and lonely here now. Miss being able to talk to him!
Yes, It has been 3 weeks with no phone call, It is very different around my home too, So quiet, It was so full of laughter and busy with friends coming over and watching movies and playing games. But now my son is off making new friends, not to forget his old friends, and making a wonderful life for himself and that's what I think about when I'm sad and missing him.
I know what you mean lovingmom, We had quite a few of his friends over especially the last month. This is hard on them and us , but yes I am very proud of what they are doing and who they will become. Just wish we would get a phone call, but it doesn't look good
Dylsmom, are you going to PIR, I can't wait to go,I know we only get a small amount of time with our SR, but it's still worth the trip. My mind constantly stays on him, what he's doing and how he's doing. i received a letter on Friday and that was great, but still want to talk to him.
Sorry I must have missed this question.. Yes I am flying to PIR from Florida on the 2nd and going to Sarge's Meet and Greet that night. I have my suitcase, ribbons, door sign, think I might need a coat too. Are you going to the M&G?
Is it too late for him to change a name on the guest list for graduation?
No Heaven0613, they can still add and change names
