DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

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."

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 353 and 354

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!!!

Hi all,
My son wrote, I was so excited to get his letter. I think the mail man thinks I might be stocking him!! My son said he was sick- in-bed after wisdom teeth removed and half of division was too, they are given 2 days to rest. He said its painful but mostly funny how they couldn't understand each other. He's making lots of friends and talked about hanging with a tall SR with red hair. Seemed in good spirits. Hope week 4 is not so bad.

Hi Carmen,

I'm sure my mail man is thinking the same thing. If I see him coming I'm out on the porch.  The mail doesn't even get the box lol.  Others not in our shoes have no idea how important those letters are :)

Hi I was so excited to hear from my son today!!!  I miss hearing his voice everyday but he is doing good.  He's helping out in the chapel and loves it. 

Hello everyone, 

I haven't been on for awhile now.  I have been receiving letters from my Sr.  I also missed her call but she got to talk to her Dad.  So, Ive been really down because she left me a voicemail at work letting me know that she wont get another phone call for another 2 weeks.  She also got her wisdom teeth out and said that everyone is getting sick but that she was feeling fine.  Thank God.  I unfortunately can't stalk the mailman but if I could I would.  

This page has been so amazing. I get to contact mom's that are going through the same. My SR has been bonding well with his 353 division and they are doing well. I haven't heard if they all passed swimming and inspections yet. Hope!
Pir 10-23-15 I now they only get 4 guests but we have 2 more that would like to see the ceremony. Any suggestions?
