Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 003 & 004.
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!!!
We received the 1st letter today from our SR. Dated Sept 25. He sounded really good, missing the new season of NCIS and of course Mom and Dad.. He sounded very up beat, said it really wasn't as bad as he expected at least thus far.. You just have to remember to Sound Off.. Oh, the Peanut Butter Shot...IT HURT. LOL. It was great to get the letter, he figured by the time we got his letter he would be at the end of his 3rd week, which is about right since he arrived there on the 18th.
Hope everyone else starts getting their letters.
My son is in 3 and I got his letter Thursday. He wrote it at 0700 Sunday. He already sounds different as he says the punishments for their mistakes is "intensive" but they are "growing into being responsible". :) I reminded him of when his brother in law got caught smoking at Army boot camp and his entire squadron was punished. :)
I got a letter too!! He sounded like he was in good spirits. Passed his swim test yay! He was super worried about it when he left.
I do have a question though, his PIR had the address on Sailor Street and his letter has Ohio street. Can someone compare their letter to mine and let me know the right address? Div 3
thelostairman, My son is in Ship09 DIV 003 and his street address is
3415 Sailor Dr
I noticed he also wrote USS John F Kennedy on the same line as his ship and div but I don't think that has to be included in the address.
Hey Heather, what was the date you your SR's letter.. Ours was dated the 25th, apparently the day they moved to their ship.. Hoping we get something from this past weekend.. :)
