Hello everyone and welcome to the Navy!!! This Group was started for the loved one of DEPPERS leaving in the month of June (although everyone is welcome).......What year you say? Well ......any year!
If you have June ship out issues/questions etc., need specific information, (or have some to share) or just want to talk to someone that is where you are, with a Recruit leaving for and arriving in BC in June, ...then this is the place to be. :-)
Remember, don't "miss 'em while you're with them!" :) Make the most of every precious moment together before they leave. This will be a big transition for both of you! We'll be here for you every step of the way...
Things to do in the last month before your future sailor leaves (Click on the link)
Once your recruit has arrived at RTC, the next stop here is to join the group Boot Camp for Moms (and loved ones) Hangout and ask questions in this group until your form letter arrives.
Approx two to three weeks after your recruit arrives you will receive the "Form Letter". The form letter will include their Ship# , DIV #, their mailing address, PIR date, and the Security Access Form. The Security Access form needs to be completed and sent back to your recruit ASAP. Keep this letter in a safe place, it has the information you will need.
The date that is on the form letter is the official date for your Recruit's Training Groups PIR (graduation), Things can always change for an individual Recruit (due to illness, injury, failure to pass a final test etc.)! So, we always recommend that you plan, if possible, to purchase Refundable or Exchangeable plane tickets.
After you have received the form letter, join the group for your recruits PIR. There you can ask questions about PIR, training, hotels etc.Those groups will be posted in the Boot Camp for Mom's group.
Thanks for joining us. We hope you will realize you are not alone, and will soon make new friends, plus feel supported and encouraged! :)
**It is very important that your future Sailor be physically fit prior to shipping to the RTC (these are new standards beginning 1/1/2018) and that he be able to pass an initial run test. See Navy Fitness Standards"The initial run standard is evaluated on the 1.5 mile run of the first Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) at boot camp. The initial run standard for male recruits will be 16 minutes 10 seconds and 18 minutes 37 seconds for female recruits."

Please click on the link below as it has info for your recruit to prepare him/herself before leaving for boot camp.
Here is updated info on the Fitness Assessment that they must pass in boot camp.
Lonasboys- it appears this group is pretty quite. Have you heard from your SR yet? I am on the bootcamp group. It's pretty active but there is a mix of ship dates for SRs on there. It does make it nice to hear about the SRs that are a few weeks ahead of ours and how things are running. You should check the group out. Our SR is also heading to sub school in the secf rate. They just might get to know each other real soon!
Hello. My son ships out on June 30th also Kellyrene. We’re definitely disappointed that we can’t witness his swearing in. He’s super excited and I’m super nervous. His brother is shipping on the 8th. We’re so proud of them both, but this is tough! My first son to ship will have a sub job, and the second will be a CTI. Thus it begins.
Hello! Anyone out there with a child leaving for bootcamp in June of 2020. My son is scheduled to leave June 30, 2020, and so far we haven't heard of any delays from his recruiter. He is participating in his dep weekly by phone and facetime. Just curious if there are any other moms facing this ship date in the crazy time....
Good Morning All - June is right around the corner. Be sure you and your SR are getting ready now!

My son shipped out on Wednesday (6/19)...let the journey begin! Looking forward to the box and form letter to arrive so I can start to send letters and have an idea of when PIR will be!!!
I see a number of you have deppers getting ready to leave, be sure to join this group for boot camp moms.
Welcome schen! We have one leaving the 13th as well.
My Son Mason is shipping out on 06/13/19
