Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 011 & 012!
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!!!
I received my first letter today from Ship 13 Div 12, dated 7 Oct 12. We will be driving up from Alabama, 10.5 hours
Glad you got that first letter. My son is with your son. That's a nice drive 10.5 were about 5 hours from Cincinnati.
How many of you from Ship 13 Div 16 have received a letter from your SR? I have not yet, and I know everyone on here says no news is good news. This Wed will be the end of week 3 and the begining of week 4. I cried a lot today. I have written to him everyday. I love to hear when you receive a letter from your SR. it is so touching to hear what they are saying. Maybe I will get on in this coming week. Positive Thinking ....
My SR son is in Ship13 Div 16 I too have not gotten anything. I am having a hard time with not knowing when and how many days to reserve a hotel room for. If he will be able to spend the whole holiday weekend with us or not. We want to spend every second we can with him. So we are waiting for a call or letter. This is too hard!!!!
@ pcrager - so I was thinking maybe that 3 week phone call today.. It is Sunday. But with not letter, I feel there also will be not call. But I do keep my phone with me 24/7..I am flying in to Ohare on Tuesday early afternoon, and going to Sarge's Meet and Greet. I am flying home on Friday night. My ex is staying till Sat night. Hope to meet you at the Meet and Greet.
I am sure we will meet. Which meet and great are you going to? We still have not decided on driving or flying. We want to stay as long as he is able to be with us. Still waiting for the call but he might not have any information about it either. Let me know when you get a call or a letter and I'll do the same.
pcrager - I am going to Sarge's meet and Greet. I hope you go to that one. I will for sure let EVERYONE know when I get a letter. OMG I will be so excited.... I try not to cry but the tears come so often and at any time..
I am attending Sarge's meet-n-greet. Maybe we will meet each other there. I hope you get a letter soon. I hear about the tears. They come at the weirdest times. I have had a letter from my SR and so has his GF. Both notes were positive which is great but I still miss him terribly. Maybe phone calls next week??? Keeping my fingers crossed. I would be lost woth out all the moms on this site.
Ctownmom - I look forward to meeting all of the wonderful people that we have been talking to.. To bad the Veterans ones would not be there too. I just hope I get a letter this week.. Wed is the start of week 4
No phone call yet! I'm so looking forward to it. Maybe this weekend??
It seems that they have little time to write as my son can be quite wordy and his letters have been quick and to the point. He often states how it is a quick letter, so to the mom's who have not received one; I hope you get one soon, but the kids seem to be busy getting through their watches, various training, etc. I have been told that it is great to know how things are going at home and that is what he asks each time. So keep writing your recruit because I am positive that they are reading those letters and thinking of their loved ones; and missing home, but may be beat by the end of the day.
