Anyone have an SR in this division??

Hi Ashley,

I do my daughter is in this div.

my boyfriend is in this division(:
if i may ask, when did your daughter leave for BC?

She left on 9/20 from CO.


do you know if your SR`s have gotten any letters yet? i`m not sure if my SR has gotten mine. Does anyone know how long it takes for a letter to get up there from CA?

I know the letter my daughter sent last week got to TN in two days.  I don't know yet if she has received any though.  I read somewhere that it may take a couple of extra days for them to receive, gee go figure.


I was wondering the exact same thing...I've been writing my son a letter a day (sometimes 2) and while I was waiting for his mailing address, I wrote an "ongoing letter" kind of in journal format.  When I finally got his first letter/address (I skipped all the way from the mailbox) it was 14 pages long (yes, I type the letters--my handwriting is horrible).  I've been thinking that when he FINALLY does get his mail he might actually be overwhelmed--but in a good way (I hope).
hmmm, it took me forever to get my first letter. :/
he wrote me and his dad on Sunday the 25th and neither of us got the letter until the following Friday.. i wonder why it took so long..

It might depend on where you are in CA, I really don't know though.  I know at times it has taken more than a week to get something from FL to TN.  No telling with the trouble the USPS is having.


Hi Everyone! My daughter dated her first letter with Sept 26?, which fell on a Monday. I guess she wasn't sure if it was sure of the date. I received her letter on 9/29. I doubt she wrote that letter on a Monday. Anyway, she arrived @ BC on 9/21.

So is everyone's SR in choir or is division 901 split up in different categories? Not sure how this works.

im not sure either. Anyone know what this division is really?
My girl told me that 901 participates in the graduation ceremony.  Some are in chorus, band, exhibition, and the like.  My girl is in the exhibition platoon.  She found out she was going to be in it when they handed her a rifle.  She had been in the drill team in high school and has had much practice performing with a rifle in hand.
'I'm hopeful that's my son too--in the exhibition platoon.  He was on the drill team for 4 years in ROTC in high school
