shuga, now is the time to write your daughter a very encouraging letter. Tell her that she can and will pass. Most SR who have trouble with the prone floating part are scared they will sink. Remind your daughter that everything will be ok and she will not drown. There are trained Navy swimmers and divers there to help her. Just be very positive.
Hi shuqa, Welcome to the Navy family. I see you only have 18 more days till PIR. Time is going to go by so fast now. Soon you will be sitting there in the PIR hall waiting for your Sailor to march in. Make sure you bring a box of tissues with you, LoL You are going to need them.
