Hi -Decided to get this group back up to the top of the discussions. if you didn't read it in the main discussion, our SRs have BS21 on Tuesday the 26th. Just got a letter today. It sounds like they have come together as a group : )
Got a letter from Josh today... but it is addressed to is little sister and so I wont know what it say until she gets home from work . In the interim, I've been wondering... do the recruits have any way to know where we are in the seats? And when we meet up with them in the drillhall, how do we hook-up with them amidst such a large group of people?
From what I've read here on the site, the bleachers seats are divided and marked by division so all division 354 families will be seated together and the recruits (sailors) from 354 will be able to see where we are. I've seen suggestions that the sailors should stay where they are and let family come to them but I'm not sure about that. I have absolutely no idea about how to meet with them once they are released for liberty. If you find out put it up here and I'll do the same. Between us I think we'll get it figured out. lol
