I am a nurse. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years. We have 5 children and 3 grandsons. My sailor is 4 of 5. He just grad from high school. I am so proud of him. I still am in awe of him and his decision to enlist. Go Navy!
Did you hear about your PIR yet? Mine is set for the 23rd of Aug and he is on Ship 13 DIV 312- I guess his training group starts with DIV 311 and I have not heard yet how many divisions in this group. And I hope to keep in touch, maybe we can meet at PIR or sometime in Texas. Have a great day!
Looks like our children left the same day and are going to be going to A school together in Texas to be corpsman! Would love to add you to my friends list to keep in touch! HOpe you are having a good day!
I noticed your questions above about the address and care packages. You cannot send any care packages to your SR in BC; that will have to wait for "A" School and after. As far as when you will get the address, look for the form letter about 10 days, more or less, after your SR arrived at BC. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC will let you know what is happening and Letter Writing & Fun Stuff/Questionnaires to send to your Recruit will let you know what you can and cannot send once you have the address. Be sure to check out the other Pages (found under the pictures of the members) as well. What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) 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.
