Does anyone know anything about ship 4 at Great Lakes? I just got my brothers address from his recruiter and wanted to know if I can start sending mail now or am I supposed to wait until I receive…Continue
I see that you have joined Ship 5 Moms(Formerly Ship 17) and see FAQ about SEPS and http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/faq.html#separations for more information on SEPS.
Be sure to have your recruit sign paperwork with legal so that they will be able to discuss the situation with you if your recruit wants that to happen. Your recruit will also have to sign the HIPAA form for you to speak with anyone about any medical condition.
FAQ about SEPS indicates that phone calls are authorized daily, but the recruits may not have access to phones every day to make calls. Those in SEPS are usually able to go to the NEX at least twice a week--females on Monday/Wednesday and males on Tuesday/Thursday--and sometimes on Saturday and the recruits are able to access the phone banks on those days and make calls if they have a phone card.
To join the Ship 5 SEPS fB group, click https://www.facebook.com/groups/535221726514465. It is a closed group and you must be approved to join, which may take a few days to a week or so. Remember that the reasons for being in SEPS are as varied as the recruits there.
"Separated" is now an option for “Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?” on your My Page.
Arrival and What Happens at RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what is happening 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 RTC in most cases. Let me know when you know what division your recruit 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 recruit’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
Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) and change the Privacy Settings for this page from "Anyone" to "Members."
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
