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.
There is a group called 900's Division Sailors, they have a list of Divisions that will perform prior to their PIR, and 925 is on for 4-18 and 4-25. If you go to the website www.bootcamp.navy.mil there is a link to watch PIR every Friday! Yes, I actually watched one already, I was just curious about it.
Hi Magyc1972! Welcome to N4M! My son is also in Ship 02 DIV 925. I too would love to hear his voice or receive a letter. I keep telling myself no news is good news. At least our SRs are scheduled to perform in the PIRs on 4-18 and 4-25, I will be watching eagerly to see if I can pick him out! Missing him is the hard part, but I am so proud. Hang in there, we are all in the same "ship".
