I've received two letters also. She told me to watch for them on Wednesday as Sunday is their time to write. Hopefully she will be able to call this weekend. I have sent a letter or card every day and one time I sent my own questionnaire Maybe she will fill it out and I will get my questions answered..
Hey 900's,,,have any of you heard what your sailors would be doing during PIR's, can't wait to get sneak peak of them soon(hopefully). My son said he was in a drumline..so i'm guessing that means he will be performing?!!
Greetings - We're getting letters from Scott every Thursday. Also got a call on Friday 10/1. Time is flying and looking so forward to the graduation on the 29th. Hope to meet some of you at the welcome reception at the Ramada on Thursday 10/28.
My son says that the Drumline is a dream come true for him. Says every Saturday he get's to let "loose" and play! So I'm happy he's doing something he enjoys. He like the "hands on" training they are into now also. I wasn't aware that they perform at their own PIR also, does that mean they don't "march" in w/their DIV? Or maybe our whole division is split up anyway because of all their different "performance"?
