All Hands Magazine's mini-documentary series "Making a Sailor": These six videos follow 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.
KathyC......i, I see you have changed your Username so that it no longer contains your last name. (You made the change some time ago.) You also need to change the URL (address) to this page. Make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. (If you are using a Smart phone, you will need to switch to Desktop View to make this change.)
Also make change 3while you are there so that this page is no longer open to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Nice to meet another Mom from Division 257!! I cant wait to meet everyone in person! Thank you also for the offer of a possible ride from the airport. It actually looks like my Dad might be coming with me and we can rent a car. Not sure yet though. Im still waiting for a call from my SR so I can see how confident he feels about PIR. I know he has had some problems, I just dont know the details. I will let you know though if I can arrange transportation or if I might need to take you up on your offer of a ride if we can work it out :)
Hey, how are ya'll? My son, Ship 10, DIV 258, write to him every other day and sometimes my fingers can't help themselves and i write everyday...I was wondering why i wasn't getting any letters back - then it dawned on me, we sent no stationary or stamps - but they couldn't take them in with them anyway...well i've started enclosing a self-addressed stamped in every letter i write or card i send...now if i don't get a response, it will be because he either doesn't have the time or just wants to rest in free time...still waiting tho - can't wait for PIR 8/12...Ramada INN - TeXaS is coming to town - Southern Blessings, Cindy
