Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 317 & 318. 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 to post questions, and concerns, we “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion groups as often as we would like.
Every single question 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 haven't heard anything about the schedule either. The recruiter said our son would be able to stay with us at the hotel, but others have said that he has to go back at night by a scheduled time. I live in Midlothian if you need moral support. The only thing I have received so far is the box and the form letter - on which my son wrote "this sux. Love you both". Not very encouraging, but kind of what I figured would happen. His recruiter kind of glamorized everything so I'm sure it was a reality check.
Sailors are not granted overnight Liberty (they used to be a few years ago)...they must return to their command each night...either RTc for those departing the next day or Sunday...or TSC GL for those attending A school in GL.
"P" days...processing days (when your son filled his box and sent it off) do... especially...suck!
my son is in div 318. No letter yet except the form letter. No calls yet either. When my son called when he arrived at BC, he said he would be allowed to call again in 3 wks. So I guess that would be end of this week or beginning of next week,?
My son is also in 318 and I got a letter from him today. I'm sure yours is on its way, hang in there!! I have my phone glued to me, I am not missing his call for anything and thats what I told my Boss at work! :)
Still no letters. I guess he didn't have time to write us or was just too tired this week. I guess as long as we don't get a phone call from the Navy, that he's doing ok. But I sure miss him a lot and a letter would help me cope a little. I didn't want him to join the Navy (or any other branch) in the first place, and this sure isn't helping. He's so intelligent, I was kind of hoping for a doctor or something. At least at college I would get to see him. Now he's just gone.
hi my daughter is in the same div317..i recieved several letters already but not a phone call. but myn baby did say she is ok.............our girlzs might be buddies...lol..
My daughter is in 317 also. Got a 2nd letter on Friday and a call on Saturday. She claims things are OK and they sent one girl home already. Good Luck and hope you hear soon.
wonder why they sent her home.....thats not good news was she hurt..sick..
Sick I guess. She said also that they have to earn their phone calls and 94 girls just won't stop talking so they limited their privledges until they can follow the rules. she thought maybe even holding back a box of mail too. I can't imagine how hard it must be for them to adjust. I guess its all part of the training.
