Rather than starting a new group for the division, join the group, PIR 11/02/2012 TG 51 (clickable link) to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR. Divisions 359 and 360 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 together, so look for others with loved ones in either division.
You can/should delete the ship 03 division 360 PIR November 2, 2012 group. Edit the group page and change the Group Address to DeleteGroup and/or click on Report an Issue and let the Admin know to delete it. Make sure to copy the URL of the group into your message.
You will find this site very helpful and full of members who are eager to answer your questions. Browse around the site and check out the forums, groups, blogs, photos, videos, and even the other member profiles!
