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'm a mother, wife, knitter, lawyer, etc. The oldest of my 3 daughters is at RTC.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...

I needed to learn more about "Navy," not because I questioned the wisdom of a military career, but I did not know why my daughter chose the Navy, when my family is all Army and my husband's is all Air Force. I soon learned that my daughter did her homework, and that the Navy is 100% right for her.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Hello. I just saw this...sorry I am not able to get on all the time. We are all in this together. I am hoping I get a call this weekend. I can't wait to hear what he is doing...can't wait to see him. Planning on going to the PIR...see you there!
Hi! Thank you for the friend request! My daughter left on the 19th! Just like everyone in Div 910 we have not heard from her! I would just love to hear her voice and know she's doing ok. There is a page for division 900/800's my daughter has no musical talent and if she's doing flags you had better duck and cover! There are people who do behind the scenes work, assisting VIP's, handicap people, making sure all runs smoothly and lots of other things that sound like my little SR! Look on my page and you will see a couple of replies that really explain what our SR's are doing the links are there too...I have no idea how to send them to you as I'm not the most computer literate!
As always if my SR were here she would show me how to send them to you! I really miss not being able to talk to her..being able to ask wheres this or how do I do that or do you want to go to the grocery with me? She is my buddy and I really miss her terribly!
I will post when I finally get a phone call or a letter from her- I promise!
Have a good day and I will check in later! ⚓️ Be strong!
Thank you for the friend request.... It helps talking with other parents worrying about our kids!! It is so hard going from talking to them constantly to not hearing from them at all!! I can not wait for 117/14!!!
