Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 021 and 022
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!!!
Does anyone have news from Division 21? I got a letter again but he sounded more "down" than in the previous one. "ready for boot camp to be over. Lots of getting yelled at over a bunch of nonsense." Hopefully it's a case of the midway blues and he'll start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think it will help when I tell him his first paycheck has been deposited to his account ;).
2 weeks tomorrow and we fly out! His letters are so much better as far as his moral. I think he figured it out on how to cope, to keep his head down and work hard. He says his father gives him so much inspiration through his words of encouragement. His father works nights so he tells him to look up at the brightest star when they are outside at night and by then dads love has reached him. Also to send it back as he will look for the brightest one to get his love back from him. So cute that he wrote that he is doing exactly what his dad asked, they have such a special bond together.
He didn't get to call the last time they let phone calls out due to having watch at that time. He was just upset they didn't give him time to call home when his watch was over. The time to see him is shorter but the days are getting longer lol.
