All Hands Magazine's full length documentary "Making a Sailor": This video follows four recruits through Boot Camp in the spring of 2018 who were assigned to DIV 229, an integrated division, which had PIR on 05/25/2018.
Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass isno longer needed to drive on to base for parking.
Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.
Click on all groups, then scroll thru the groups until you find it or you coul type boot camp moms in the search box. That might help. :) Welcome, there are not too many of us, so far anyway that I know for sure.
So, along with the discussion about the M&G....If we were to decided to relocate the M&G I would be willing to get t relocated, but that would mean that each family would need to pay for their own meal/bill.
And on that note, I'm wondering if we as a division want to do something as a group to make easier to find each other....Pins, sashes, scarves, etc... but they've been around for a long time and each division is responsible for doing their own if they want to. It's not a necessity, but it does help you locate the members in your specific division.
You have so many options... different colored scarves, lanyards, sashes, t-shirts, hats, etc... get creative and think of something unique to all of you and work with the talent in your Div. You will be surprised what all you come up with. It really is just a fun thing to do to make each division easy to stand-out at the M&G.
my son is in this ship and div too. simply i think moving it to another location would probly be a good idea after reading the 8/13 experience. and we have no problem of course paying for our meals. if you want to arrange a place i say that's great, just tell me where and when.
Evening everyone! I got a letter today from my SR. He said the whole div did really well on a test, the average was 4.0!! Also this week is Hell Week for them. :( He said he wasn't sure if he would have time to write this week. :(
