All Hands Magazine's mini-documentary series "Making a Sailor": These six videos follow four recruits through Boot Camp in the spring of 2018 who were assigned to DIV 229, an integrated division, which had PIR on 05/25/2018.
halfpintl, I read you comment on the PIR Ref Info Group. I wanted to clarify about Sarge's willingness to keep an SR's cell phone and civi's. Does he do this only for families who hire his taxi service or for anyone? Is this another business that he has? How much does he charge to keep personal belongings? I started and sort of "administer" that group, so it'd be great to have more details to post. Thank you!
Thank you halfpint! I just called and talked to the person in charge at Ship 5 about trying to talk to my son. He said they can call everyday if they want to. I asked him if my son could use his phone card to call me more than once a day and he said he could. He was very rude to me!! Can't wait to get my son home!
Good morning halfpint...Thank you for your concern :) As of right now I still have not been able to talk to my son but my husband has. My husband said that our son sounded so weak and down that at this point, without coming out and saying it, he seems to be relieved to be coming home. After he comes home and recovers from this experience we will talk to him about what his options are. I'm not even sure what his options are. We will have to research those depending on what he wants to do. Thank you so much for everything!!!
