Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link).
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP code to one that is not easily associated with you.
If you get a ship date, check out the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month before Your Future Sailor Leaves for the RTC. Be sure to let your loved ones know about this site. You may want to join http://www.navydep.com to learn the ins and outs from the DEP point of view. Craig runs that and will steer you to some good links on there. Best wishes and thank you for your interest in serving our country!
Once you have a future Sailor in DEP, let me know his ship date and the rating (job/specialty) or field that his contract is for and I will give you info on that.
I don't understand why you joined fit program. That's a group I hope you never need. The FIT program is for recruits who have failed a part of the PFA and need extra help to pass it--some will have PIR on time, but many in that program don't have PIR. You can leave that group. Click on fit program and then "Leave Group" in the upper right when the group opens
If your fiancé gets a ship date, go to the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month before Your Future Sailor Leaves for the RTC. At the bottom are links for each of the months, join the one for the month that your then future Sailor ships.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. Start with OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and Arrival and What Happens at the RTC and read 1 or 2 pages a day and then go back to them as you need the info.
What is your recruit's rating (job/specialty) or field going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.
Take care and blessings to you and yours.
