Best of luck with PIR. My daughter is in ship 6, she was very sick and had to have some surgery, now we are awaiting a passing time and for her to run BS-21. When finished there She will head to TX for her long awaited A-school. Her original PIR was 8/13.
My oldest leaves for his adventure in BC on the 20 th of Sept.
