Hi! I am not the one who put up that schedule, but I think it was mostly hobbled together by a combination of information in our letters. The last letter I got from my son included a schedule of each day as he understood it to be happening, so your sailor will be able to tell you himself the schedule later on. Certain things do happen in order, but which day precisely depends on the division (and they go in order numerically). Feel free to join PIR 8/13 and ask questions of everyone--someone will know the answer!
If you are worried, it's understandable. You’ll get adjusted in no time. You have already joined the group just for new members – New Moms Stop Here group. We will be there for you before bootcamp, during bootcamp and after bootcamp.
