Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 037 & 038
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 rec'd one too.. Happy! Happy!!
Glad to see everyone is finally getting letters! It does make things feel so much better! Only thing I didn't like was he said he only got 1 letter from me 1 from is grandparents and 7 from his wife! I have sent 6, his grandparents 4, his wife 12, and 4 others from other family members! And those were sent out over a week ago! Wonder if they hold back some just in case they don't receive any?! Hope not because I need to know some answers to some questions I asked him! Especially about his money for pictures!
About the pictures. Do they offer them only to the SR's ? I def want them but i bet my son won't. He hates having his picture taken:) I must write in the next letter to be sure and purchase them. I think they are privy to using their naval bank accounts to purchase them plus stuff in the PX.
Good Morning! Happy to report that we received three letters from our SR yesterday -Ship 11 Div 038!! Passed his tests and loving every minute of training. Great to hear from him and that he is happy. Little homesick but said he does not have much time to be homesick which is good. Funny thing is before he left we took out our landline and use only our cell phones which he had programmed in his cell phone so he cannot remember our numbers. Bad thing is they are getting to make calls this weekend so we will not get a call until I get him a letter with our cell numbers. Hopefully he will call his grandparents landline Sunday! We have booked our rooms at the Ramada Inn-Waukegan and unfortunately have to make the 13 hour drive. Not flying because there are some in our group that cannot buy the airline ticket. Renting a mini van instead so the 6 of us can travel together.
So excited t hear that everyone is getting letters. We got our 2 1/2 page written letter. What a guy. He sounds good. He is doing well and he said he is staying under the Radar and not being a Gomer Pyle :) I talked to him twice this week, getting security clearance issues squared away. He is looking forward to coming home for Christmas as we are as well. We are staying at the Ramada as well. I look forward to our meet and greet.
Still holding on to my phone like it is Gold, waiting for my SR to call! Ughhhhh! Hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving and remember we are Thankful to have a brave Sailor to protect us and our country! We are lucky!!!!
I was thinking the samething. Did you get a call one week of him being there? My call was 19 seconds and my SR told me he would call around week 3 but that didnt happen. I figured since he was a leader of his Divs he would get to call, guess I thought wrong :-(
