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.
"Kinsmi...Congratulations! Welcome to this space. It will help you so much. I can't tell you how amazing these women are and how quickly you form a bond to them. I hate opening my email and having no Navy Mom emails! Come here to vent and cry…"
MollysProudMom... yes I did get a call today and Caran sounded so much more upbeat. They are doing great, though she said the division is struggling to march still. They were going to have a challenge of some sort today as they marched back from the NEX. Hopefully that made it better.
Glad you thought to have Molly give your cell number to Caran so she can mail it to me. Great idea! I am really looking forward to meeting you and other families on June 7th.
I asked Caran if there were ay recruits without family so that we could invite someone to dinner after PIR. She’s going to ask around.
I'm in Orange County. I'm so thankful to have connected here. Our daughters are pretty awesome and brave!
My daughter's name is Caran by the way. Pronounced Kuh-ron. Every letter I get she sounds better and better. Today's letter said that their division is not very good at marching so they didn't earn the drill flag. They also didn't earn their academic flag. But, they are pushing through and will make it through to graduation.
Molly's Proud Mom - I received a letter from my daughter yesterday. In one of my letters to her recently I told her that I was connecting with other moms through Navy4Moms and that there is someone named Molly in her division. She knew exactly who I was talking about and said she ran right over to tell her that you and I were connected on this site. She said they are good friends and that they hold each other accountable. I love that! It makes my heart happy!
I'm looking forward to meeting you and Molly at their PIR.
