What is your Sailor's (daughter's) rating (job/specialty) and/or where is she stationed (what vessel, if one)? There may be groups I can direct you to.
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.
I see you have joined your PIR group; I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
I missed the call, I was bummed, he called on my cell phone, but I was at the hospital with my grandmother, and couldn't get good reception, but he called the house, and he was able to talk to Mike (Stepfather) so at least he got a hold of one of us, good for your daughter she hung in there, I know you are a proud mom, as we all are. Good luck to all are sons/ daughters. Hope to see you there if possible. Gina
Hi Stephanie, it's been a while since we talked, hope your daughter is doing well. My son is doing good so far. I bet our recruits are counting down to see us, just like we are! Are you going to the meet and greet? If so hope to see you there. Hope to talk to you soon. Take care. Gina
Hi stephanie, thank you for the invite, my son too is also, in the same Div as your daughter, I received his phone call today, I was so happy, today is his birthday, and I was a little sad, but when he called,that all changed, it became a happy happy birthday for him, and I was able to wish him a happy birthday!
