FIRST TIME HERE?
FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO GET STARTED:
Choose your Username. For the privacy and safety of you and/or your sailor,NO LAST NAMES ARE ALLOWED, even if your last name differs from that of your sailor (please make sure your URL address does not include your last name either). Also, please do not include your email address in your user name. Go to "Settings" above to set your Username. While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!
Join groups! Browse for groups for your PIR date, your sailor's occupational specialty, "A" school, assigned ship, homeport city, your own city or state, and a myriad of other interests. Jump in and introduce yourself! Start making friends that can last a lifetime.
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.
I stumbled upon your post within the 02/08/2013 PIR group about possibly getting your Sailor a backpack. I see that you decided on a Challenge coin, but you may want to let others know that the recruits are issued black backpacks at the RTC, so they don’t need to buy those. There are other gift ideas in the Page, Gift Ideas for PIR, within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). Those are clickable links. There is info in the other Pages (found under the pictures of the members) that may be of interest to you as well. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
