The others should be able to get in if there is left over seating, but despite what others say that is not a sure thing. The surest way is to have him add the additional people to another SR's list who is not using all his slots. He needs to do this now. Final lists are due week before graduation. You will need the Sr's name, ship/division/and password. I would overnight him a letter and ask him to do this...just to be safe. If not as long as not to many divisions are graduating then they should get in, they just won't be able to sit with your SR's Division.
Just realized that you book your room at the Navy Lodge, DUH! It was a long night last night. You are the one that suggested it. Well you know where my mind is. Anyway, I think I should get to bed a little earlier tonight than what I did last night. Have a good evening!
Got son's form letter yesterday and the address the recruiter gave us was all wrong, good thing I didn't send letters out. He is in Ship 3 Div.245. So are boys are in the same boat, HA, HA. I just made my reservations at the Navy Lodge. Was going to stay at another hotel until I saw your comment on this one. Not a bad deal. I would walk there, but there aren't sidewalks, could be risky. Looking forward in meeting you. Can't wait to get a letter to see what is going on. Well it's 1:30am here, quess I better go to bed.
Hi, have you heard yet what ship and division your son is in yet? The recruiter gave his address to us yesterday, don't know if it's correct? Ship 12, Div.237. Can't wait till hear from him. His best friend that went in with him got medically discharged yesterday for asthmas, which his recruiter was told about but said it was ok. So I don't know if my son knows he his leaving.
I so glad you got Wade's box and that the recruiter was able to give you his address. I can't even contact my son's recruiter, he never told us who he was. So I'm just going to have to wait until I receive the letter.
