yes, my son said he passed his swimming too. I think this week they get their individual BC jobs in their "staff" division. Next week is called Hell Week but I haven't figured out why yet. My SR said week three and four are the hardest. So make sure if you talk to your SR you really wroot them on and build them up!!! I think they do start PT testing this week
Glad to have you as a new friend! I am trying to add friends who are on Ship 02-Div 936 so that we can communicate now and stay in touch even after PIR. Tell me about your SR, mine is 24, we heard from him yesterday and he sounded good. Heard that the next two weeks are the roughest....praying for all our SR's.
