AJ's Mom - glad to see you joined the BC Mom group. Be sure to stop by and introduce yourself on our main group page in the comment section. (be sure to scroll down through the page.)
AJ's Mom - I noticed your posting in the latest activities. Since your son is leaving for BC soon, you may want to go ahead and join the BC Mom's group. It looks like you had joined previously, from lemonelephant's comment, but since it is not showing up in your groups, I assume you left. Please feel free to join again.
Join DEP-Leavin' for bootcamp in September. You will meet others with loved ones leaving the same day or week in September 2020 who may be in the same TG and have PIR together.
Your future Sailor may want to join http://www.navydep.com to learn the ins and outs from the DEP point of view.
Be sure to check out the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month before Your Future Sailor Leaves for the RTC.
Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what will happen and what to expect.
Be sure to join your PIR group once you get The Form Letter, which now arrives 9 to 14 business days after the recruit's arrival at the RTC in most cases. Let me know when you know what ship and division he is in. I will have more info for you.
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 RTC and read 1 or 2 pages a day and then go back to them as you need the info.
If you would like information on your future Sailor’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field, then let me know the rating or field. There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.
Take care and blessings to you and yours
Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!
Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.
Then jump right in! Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.
Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.
Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!
Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.
This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.
Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
